The Science of HIV/AIDS Vaccines: an Introduction for Community Groups

A well-written layperson's guide to the science behind HIV vaccine research, starting with an introduction to the body's immune system and how HIV infection gradually destroys this important defence against other infections and cancer.

This 'primer' also explains the composition of the different types of vaccines now in clinical trials, and highlights the gaps in understanding that are impeding progress. It contains a glossary of relevant terms, and is also available in French and Spanish.
