The AIDS Vaccine Fund supports the efforts of IAVI—the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative. IAVI works to develop a globally accessible vaccine that will prevent the spread of HIV and eliminate AIDS, one of the greatest public health crises of all time. IAVI collaborates with academic, government, and industrial partners to connect innovative science with clinical development capabilities, translating laboratory breakthroughs into promising AIDS vaccine candidates.
