Overview

Assessment of Needs

Despite 4 decades of efforts and substantial progress in preventing, treating, and managing HIV/AIDS, a safe and effective HIV vaccine continues to be elusive. The development of an HIV vaccine would have a major impact on the spread of this disease and help change the course of the HIV pandemic. With the rapid advancements in developing effective COVID-19 vaccines, it is likely that scientists and researchers could build on some of the tools used for COVID-19 vaccines in the pursuit of an HIV vaccine.

This webinar will discuss the recent advancements and barriers in the development of a safe and effective HIV vaccine. It will also compare tools used to develop COVID-19 vaccines and how they may be used in the pursuit of an HIV vaccine.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Describe recent developments in the pursuit of an HIV vaccine
  • List the barriers in developing a safe and effective HIV vaccine
  • Compare approaches toward the development of COVID-19 vaccines and an HIV vaccine
