A globally effective HIV vaccine, along with other proven prevention techniques, would enable us to control the HIV pandemic.
MUWRP has successfully completed many HIV cohort and vaccine studies, which have advanced our understanding of HIV subtypes and disease progression in the region. By building infrastructure and increasing the capabilities of local public and private partners, MUWRP also helps ensure quality services for communities participating in vaccine research and HIV cohort studies.
