HIV Vaccine development: Challenges and Progress

As we enter the fourth decade of the HIV epidemic, UNAIDS vision calls for zero discrimination, zero new HIV infections and zero AIDS related deaths through universal access to effective HIV prevention, treatment, care and support. Access to antiretroviral therapy provides the potential to curb AIDS related deaths, but there is still a very long way to go. Until fairly recently, most HIV prevention strategies focused on socio-behavioural interventions with condoms, ‘faithful’ relationships and abstinence together being hailed as the main prevention messages. Current strategies include the use of vaginal microbicides and male medical circumcision. Although a lot of progress has been made in the prevention research arena, it is irrefutable that the development of a safe and effective vaccine becomes the best hope for ultimately ending the HIV pandemic. However, the field of HIV vaccine development research is fraught with many extraordinary challenges.
