Prevention Gaps and Needs — My view for 2015

I am excited to be part of 2015 advocacy as Zimbabwe embarks on a Phase I AIDS vaccine trial in April as part of the P5 Correlates Program in Southern Africa. The country also hosts the ASPIRE microbicide ring trial, which will be winding down end of this year. I am excited to be part of the advocacy so that the country is ready and aware of the trials as they go through the various stages. My motivation has been driven by the possibility that we can end AIDS by 2030 and that women all over the world can have prevention tools within their control as currently they are sitting ducks for infection due to biological, social and cultural reasons.
