Imagine A World Without AIDS
Based on information published by UNAIDS in December 2007, there are over 6,800 new HIV infections every day. This translates into approximately 2.5 million new HIV infections worldwide every year. Nearly 330,000 children under age 15 will die of AIDS every year.
Our goal is to help find a vaccine that prevents HIV infection or delays progression to AIDS after HIV infection. Developing a vaccine will save millions of lives worldwide. We need an HIV vaccine ASAP to stop the HIV pandemic.
Together with Project ACHIEVE of the New York Blood Center, we make up the New York City HIV Vaccine Trials Unit (NYC HVTU). We are part of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN). The HVTN is an international collaboration of over 30 research sites on four continents funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
