    There’s much we do and don’t know about COVID-19 and the virus that causes it. The global response to COVID-19, which is evolving rapidly, can and must benefit from lessons learned in the fight against HIV. AVAC is committed to data-driven, evidence-based advocacy, and we hope these resources help us all stay up-to-date on the facts, share experiences and make sure interventions for COVID-19 and HIV reach those who need them the most.

    It is with an incredibly heavy heart that we mourn the passing of Gita Ramjee on Tuesday, March 30 of COVID-19 related complications. She was a great friend to AVAC over the years – and she was an essential partner in helping to navigate the field through more disappointing results than any of us wanted. But those results never deterred her tireless determination to keep pushing for the next trial. Gita will be sorely missed by all of us who had the privilege to work with her. May we all build on her legacy and make her calling, her dream a reality.

Their continuing advocacy led to important wins, gained over the three weeks spent at the Regional Planning Meetings (RPMs) in Johannesburg.

    The latest installment of AVAC’s podcast, Px Pulse, is up. In this episode, AVAC puts a spotlight on HVTN 702, or Uhambo, one of the most anticipated HIV vaccine efficacy trials in the field. Data show the vaccine tested is safe, but vaccinations were stopped early after a scheduled review showed it did not offer protection.
