Expansion of Research Clinic for AIDS/HIV Vaccine



Additional space/equipment are needed at the Kangemi clinic to accommodate AIDS vaccine clinical trials.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Kangemi is one of Nairobi’s poorest, highest-density districts, where there are many young men and women vulnerable to HIV infection. Presently, IAVI and its partner organization, Kenya AIDS Vaccine Initiative (KAVI), operate through a very small and busy general medicine clinic that is used for volunteer counseling and testing and for epidemiological and behavioral research toward an HIV vaccine.

How will this project solve this problem?

The International AIDS Vaccine Initiative, and the Kenya AIDS Vaccine Initiative will expand the small Kangemi-KAVI research clinic for vaccine efficacy trials.

Potential Long Term Impact

Expansion will enable increased HIV counseling and testing, provision of basic medical care, trial recruitment, and behavioral and clinical data collection.
