Amidst the urgency to address global health challenges, the safety and rights of participants and
the community must be upheld at all costs. Join us in a discussion aimed at deepening understanding of vaccine research, ethics review processes and the community. This conversation will help advocates and community members to better understand the ethics review process for vaccine trials, with a focus on HIV and COVID vaccine research. The webinar is organized by IAVI in partnership with Wits RHI and HAVEG-UKZN as part of the Coalition to Accelerate and Support Prevention Research (CASPR).
