A safe, effective, and accessible preventive vaccine represents the best long-term hope for the control of the HIV pandemic. The development of an HIV vaccine, however, has faced a number of difficult scientific challenges that have been compounded by additional logistical and financial difficulties. To address the scientific challenges, there is a need to coordinate the current research effort better so that the scientific creativity of individual investigators is complemented by a more global, collaborative strategy aimed at developing and testing novel candidate vaccines faster and more efficiently. The HIV vaccine development effort needs to be positioned in the context of the overall global response to the HIV pandemic alongside expanded access to existing preventive and treatment interventions and other research efforts, including developing better drugs and prevention tools. Ultimately, a safe and accessible vaccine will be critical to the successful containment of the HIV pandemic.
