New HIV vaccine website

The AIDS Vaccine Advocacy Coalition (AVAC) has launched AIDS Vaccine Clearinghouse, a new source of AIDS vaccine information on the Internet. The website provides a gateway to information and a link to people and organizations interested in AIDS vaccine advocacy, research and global delivery.

The Clearinghouse is divided into separate content sections that include General & Introductory Informatio; Vaccine Science, Research & Development; Clinical Trials Around the World, including a list of clinical trials and trial sites with contact details to get more information; and Communities and Cohorts, with special sections dedicated to issues related to adolescents, women, gay men, sex workers, injecting drug users (IDUs) and African-Americans.

AVAC is simultaneously launching a new Advocates’ Network – an electronic resource for organizations and individuals interested or already involved in advocacy for the development of vaccines for HIV/AIDS.  Linked to the Clearinghouse, the Advocates’ Network will provide regular electronic announcements, updates and notices of events or activities related to AIDS vaccine and other prevention research.  You can join the Network by sending an e-mail to:
