Thanks to significant recent progress in HIV vaccine research and development, scientists are increasingly confident that HIV vaccines will someday become available for general use. The only question is when that will happen. Getting there will require both sustained support for global HIV vaccine R&D and a policy environment that continues to encourage and enable such efforts. Cognizent of those needs, IAVI and its partners strive to:
- Contribute to the evidence base demonstrating the potential value and impact of HIV vaccines and other new HIV prevention technologies, and the research required to develop these tools. Learn more about modeling the impact of HIV vaccines
- Create a more supportive policy environment for HIV vaccine R&D at the global, regional, and national levels—one that encourages innovation, collaboration, and a sustained commitment of resources to all such efforts. IAVI seeks to accomplish this in a variety of ways, including its participation in the HIV Vaccines and Microbicides Resource Tracking Working Group.

To achieve these goals, IAVI works in concert with its advocacy and technical partners, including AVAC: Global Advocacy for HIV Prevention, the Futures Institute, the Global Health Technologies Coalition, the International Partnership for Microbicides and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).
