The Search for an HIV Vaccine: Why does it take so long?

This presentation was given as part of a community education event organised by AVAC, NAM and AHPN following a proposal by Bisi Alimi. The event introduced vaccines, current state of the research and the difficulties to develop an efficient HIV vaccine. The purpose of the presentation below was to go beyond the science and put vaccine development in the broader context of product manufacturing and legal and regulatory frameworks.

Clinical Research and Communities – Conflicting Needs?

The conduct of clinical research often conflicts with community life even if it is done for the benefit of the public. This can be explained by differences in perception, understanding and respective knowledge of each other’s interests and needs. This slide was designed to support discussions around the issues raised by the need to conduct clinical research in communities which often struggle to undertsand the research and how they can impact on what is being done. It can also be used by communities who want to engage with researchers to facilitate the conduct of mutually beneficial clinical research.
