Abstract
The International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI) is a
global scientific and advocacy organisation dedicated
to ensuring an AIDS vaccine for use worldwide.
In Africa, IAVI partners with seven research
centres who conduct vaccine trials and studies.
This research requires extensive medical and scientific
writing support, for regulatory submissions and
for the publication of data. IAVI and its African partners
publish widely in international peer-reviewed
publications; however, African authors are underrepresented
as first authors. To address this disparity,
IAVI created and honed a series of science writing
workshops that so far has reached 85 investigators.
