HIV Vaccine State of the Field

The development of a safe and effective preventive vaccine against HIV would transform the lives of hundreds of millions of people around the world. It is one of the most complex scientific challenges ever undertaken.

The story of the field’s progress is best told by our partners - the organizations that comprise the Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise. Please visit the links below for facts and statistics on HIV/AIDS around the world, information on vaccines, and a historical review of HIV vaccine development.

Our best chance at developing a vaccine requires:
  • a deepening biological understanding of the human immune response and genetic diversity;
  • new ideas and new minds;
  • dynamic and close interaction between fundamental, preclinical and clinical research;
  • development of knowledge-rich exploratory phase 1 trials; and
  • inclusive discussion on the social, ethical, regulatory, intellectual property, access and legal issues.
