Report Recommends Independent Body to Oversee HIV Prevention Research

February 23, 2007

"A New Era for HIV Prevention?" Forum for Collaborative HIV Research: The report says that with the increasing number of HIV prevention methods -- including male circumcision, microbicides, female barrier methods, vaccines and pre-exposure prophylaxis -- approaching Phase III clinical trials, the research field should find ways to support the capacity of trial sites; fill gaps in scientific knowledge; encourage collaboration among researchers and donors without hindering innovation; promote ownership of clinical trials among host communities; and prepare for worldwide delivery of new prevention methods. The report recommends the creation of an independent body to establish priorities and encourage collaboration. According to the report, the body would reach out to stakeholders; facilitate the design and testing of combination products; share information; establish links between donors and stakeholders; fill gaps in knowledge; reduce research duplication; and make recommendations regarding use of resources (Forum for Collaborative HIV Research release, 2/23).
