The South African Tuberculosis Vaccine Initiative (SATVI), the South African AIDS Vaccine Initiative (SAAVI
), the Desmond Tutu HIV Centre (DTHC), the Clinical Infectious Diseases Research Initiative and the Lung and Infection Unit (some of whose work is published in this issue) are world famous for their translational clinical work, most of which is conducted at field sites within the Western Cape.
The South African AIDS Vaccine Initiative (SAAVI
) provided support to the clinical trial sites.
The clinical sites developed both through national funding via the South African AIDS Vaccine Initiative (SAAVI
) and international funding, such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN) and the multinational International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), were responsible for providing internationally accredited clinical trial sites capable of conducting HIV vaccine trials, from earliest phase through to efficacy, to the highest international standards.

Three of these are ongoing, namely HVTN 204, a phase II trial assessing the safety and immunogenicity of a multiclade HIV-1 DNA vaccine boosted by a multiclade HIV-1 Ad5 vaccine in HIV-uninfected adults, in which 240 of the 480 participants are South Africans who have received all their vaccinations and are being followed up for long-term safety and immunogenicity; the SAAVI
102/HVTN 073 trial, investigating the multigene sub-type C SAAVI
DNAC2 and MVA-C vaccine, a phase I trial currently enrolling participants, of whom 36 out of the 48 will be enrolled in South Africa; and the HVTN 503 phase IIB trial, in which 801 participants are being followed up after further enrolments and vaccinations were halted.
Elise Levendal, chairperson of the South African AIDS Vaccine Initiative (SAAVI
), emphasised that without Thailand's excellent community involvement, the trial would not have been possible.
