AIDS vaccine trials require a lot of data to be analyzed. This project supports the I.T. network that allows field sites to communicate data to the main lab for research & entry in central database.
The Kenyan AIDS Vaccine Initiative (KAVI) Nairobi network connects two field sites in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi. Both sites host AIDS vaccine clinical studies, which are data-transfer intensive and require local scientists to be kept up-to-date on research and procedures. Your support will ensure that clinical data gets entered into centralized databases quickly and that Kenyan scientists have access to the latest study results and research.
This project will add workstations for KAVI researchers, pay for access to the Internet and the network, and will allow for the hiring of additional personnel.
AIDS vaccine research requires complicated technology. Increasing access to technology will help to speed the search for an AIDS vaccine as well as build capacity in the developing world.
