South Africa to test the first-ever HIV vaccine
"The trial, called HVTN 702, will run over the course of three years in South Africa, with 5,400 people across four sites receiving the experimental drug. "We're hoping this can be the first licensable vaccine regimen in the world," Linda Gail-Bekker, deputy director of the Desmond Tutu HIV Centre in Cape Town and president-elect of the International AIDS Society, told CNN."
