By unknown | Jul 29, 2009 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

Local scientists will conduct nine studies across the country in a bid to discover new ways in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of HIV-Aids before the end of the year.

The research will focus on the interaction of HIV, development of new and improved ARV microbicides and preventative vaccines.

Nine scientists have been granted R45million funding over three years by the Department of Science and Technology to conduct clinical trials through the SA HIV-Aids Research and Innovation Platform. - Zinhle Mapumulo
