IAVI is a nonprofit scientific research organization dedicated to
addressing urgent, unmet global health challenges including HIV and
tuberculosis. Our mission is to translate scientific discoveries
into affordable, globally accessible public health solutions.
Through scientific and clinical research in Africa, India, Europe,
and the U.S., IAVI is pioneering the development of biomedical
innovations designed for broad global access. We develop vaccines
and antibodies in and for the developing world and seek to
accelerate their introduction in low-income countries. IAVI
programs and partnerships are grounded in the regions of the world
where the disease burden is the greatest, and our approach
emphasizes sustainability. Our network of clinical research center
partners in Africa and India helps strengthen in-country research
capacity and supports the training and education of the next
generation of scientists. The global impact of our science includes
fundamental contributions to understanding the biology of HIV
infection, which IAVI and others are applying toward advancing
vaccine science and immunology. IAVI accelerates scientific
discovery and development by fostering unique collaborations among
academia, industry, local communities, governments, and funders to
explore new and better ways to address public health threats that
disproportionately affect people living in poverty. Our global
reach, including a clinical research network in five countries in
sub-Saharan Africa and in India, has allowed us to make fundamental
contributions to understanding the epidemiology, transmission,
virology, and immunology of HIV. This work played a key role in
facilitating the design of promising HIV vaccine candidates, as
well as the discovery of broadly neutralizing antibodies that are
now being advanced as promising approaches for HIV prevention. Our
integrated capabilities in vaccine and antibody discovery,
development, and clinical research take advantage of
bio-pharmaceutical industry expertise to accelerate the development
and testing of prevention methods for HIV and other diseases.
Through the Product Development Center, we support external
researchers with technical and scientific expertise to accelerate
the development of their own products.
