Hi...I'd like to know if the vaccine that are being developed is just to prevent infection or is for those who are infected already...Thanks

Thank you for your post.
Unfortunately vaccine development for HIV has been very slow. Most vaccines being researched are in fairly early stages of development. Some are being tested in those already infected with the hope that it will help them control their virus while others are being tested in those not infected with the goal of preventing infection.
Is drug combo a good one?
