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.

Solution

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.

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.
