Finding an effective vaccine against HIV has become a global health priority. No one country can undertake this task alone, and success will only be possible if collaborative and co-operative efforts are established between scientists, clinicians and communities. South Africa is on the brink of testing several HIV-1 candidate vaccines. Here we will review three promising vaccines targeted for testing in South Africa, including the VEE (Venezuelan equine encephalitis) replicon vaccine and the combination DNA vaccine plus MVA (modified vaccinia Ankara) vaccine. A more general overview of HIV vaccine progress in South Africa has been published previously.
