This anthology from the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative looks back at the global commitment to fight AIDS launched at the International AIDS Congress in Durban in 2000, and at the progress and challenges of vaccine development. It provides a developing world perspective to the HIV vaccine enterprise, through the eyes of individuals playing key roles in HIV vaccine programmes.

Highlights include: a Brazilian AIDS vaccine advocate who sees vaccine-based prevention and drug-based treatment and care as part of the same goal; a South African nurse who advises on a vaccine community advisory board that has helped to dispel many myths about HIV vaccines; and a Kenyan paediatrician who outlines the difficulties in recruiting women to volunteer in clinical trials.
