FROM THE ARCHIVES: Fighting HIV In 2003

In 2003, VaxGen, a San Francisco-based biotechnology company, announced that its AIDSVAX vaccine trial had not reduced HIV infection rates among those who were vaccinated. On April 4 of that year, Worldview spoke to Bob Elliot, a college student who co-founded the Student Global AIDS Campaign. The Campaign still exists and last year launched a campaign called "PrEP for the Future," which aims to increase the accessibility of pre-exposure prophylaxis.
