Welcome to UNAIDS Science now and to the 11th issue of HIV this month in 2016! 

HVTN 702, an HIV vaccine efficacy study has just started in South Africa.  This is the first large scale HIV vaccine trial to enter the field since 2009.  HVTN 702 builds on the partial efficacy seen in the Thai RV144 Trial and reported in the same year.  The vaccine being tested in HVTN 702 has been adapted with the aim of making it more effective and more suitable for Southern African strains of HIV. A NIAID press release and a useful video describing progress on HIV vaccine development are available online.

Ahead of World AIDS Day, UNAIDS released the report Get on the Fast-Track: the life-cycle approach to HIV in Windhoek, Namibia.  The report shows that people are particularly vulnerable to HIV at certain points in their lives and calls for a life-cycle approach to find solutions for everyone at every stage of life.
