AVAC Calls for AIDS Vaccine Field to Implement New Scientific Strategic Plan Released by Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise
Date:9/7/2010

NEW YORK, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AVAC welcomes the new Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise Scientific Strategic Plan, released today, as a critical document that the field must implement as part of ongoing efforts to improve coordination, efficiency and transparency to quickly capitalize on recent advances in AIDS vaccine research.

The Plan comes at a crucial time in the field. In the last year, the RV144 Thai vaccine trial proved that an AIDS vaccine is possible, which along with the identification of new potent, HIV-specific neutralizing antibodies, has re-energized AIDS vaccine researchers, advocates and funders.

"This is the most exciting period in HIV vaccine research in the last three decades. As we enter this new era in vaccine and HIV prevention research, scientists, funders and advocates are grappling with both the excitement of scientific breakthroughs and the realities of funding shortfalls. This plan has the potential to help meet the current challenges in the field," said Mitchell Warren, AVAC executive director. "But a plan is only as good as its execution, and AVAC will be watching and reporting on how the field comes together to capitalize both on the consensus of the plan and the promise of the science."

The new Scientific Strategic Plan provides important signposts for the way forward, but the field must also be willing to be flexible and adaptable to quickly react to the changing realities of the AIDS epidemic and biomedical research.

"This plan proposes a comprehensive strategy that goes beyond the scientific activities of any single funder or organization," said Bill Snow, a co-founder of AVAC, who was involved in the planning process. "There is now an urgent need to broaden international participation in the work that is necessary to build on the recent developments that have made HIV vaccine design and development as exciting and essential as it has ever been."
