South African AIDS Vaccine Initiative
SAAVI was established in 1999 by the South African government as a project of the South African Medical Research Council.
In June 2009, SAAVI announced that it was testing a new HIV vaccine candidate but suspended all further vaccine development indefinitely due to lack of funds.
