African-European HIV Vaccine Development Network
The project aims to develop a comprehensive network of institutional partners from Europe and Africa and use their existing data and expertise to build new capacity for HIV vaccine trials in Mozambique, South Africa and Tanzania.
The African-European HIV Vaccine Development Network (AfrEVacc) is a multi-centre international three-year project funded by the European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP). The AfrEVacc network will undertake a pilot trial of a potential vaccine candidate in clinical sites in year 2, and the sites will be ready to participate in an efficacy trial at the end of year 3.
Beyond South-North Networking, the Afrevacc Network will greatly contribute to South-South Networking activities and to the development, acquisition and sharing of local skills and strengths.
