Title: An assessment of fishing communities around Lake Victoria Uganda as potential populations for future HIV vaccine efficacy studies an observational cohort study
Abstract: An effective HIV vaccine is still elusive. Of the 9 HIV preventive vaccine efficacy trials conducted to-date, only one reported positive results of modest efficacy. More efficacy trials need to be conducted before one or more vaccines are eventually licensed. We assessed the suitability of fishing communities in Uganda for future HIV vaccine efficacy trials.
