Transportation for AIDS Vaccine Trial Volunteers

Volunteers for a preventive AIDS vaccine often face major obstacles in reaching the testing center. The Kenya AIDS Vaccine Initiative urgently needs a van and driver for these volunteers.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Beneficiaries will be residents of Kangemi, one of Nairobi’s poorest districts, who are volunteers in the Kenya AIDS Vaccine Initiative’s quest for the ultimate solution to the AIDS pandemic: a vaccine to prevent HIV infection. Transportation is severely lacking in Kangemi. For residents who volunteer for clinical trials of a vaccine developed by the Universities of Oxford and Nairobi, getting to the clinic is a major obstacle. KAVI urgently needs a van and driver for these volunteers.

How will this project solve this problem?

KAVI scientists have identified a clinic at Kangemi as one of the sites where testing will be conducted to test correct dosages and the level of immune response of this vaccine concept.

Potential Long Term Impact

Providing transportation for trial volunteers will greatly ease their burden and will help ensure that the vaccine trials are concluded as rapidly as possible.
