29. Mr. Borrow

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development if she will make a statement on the work of her Department to support the development of an AIDS vaccine for use in the developing world. [100376]

Clare Short

We are providing £14 million over the next five years to the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI) to help develop an AIDS vaccine which is safe, effective and affordable for developing countries. This is additional to our earlier grant of £200,000 made in 1998, and supplements our existing work with the UK Medical Research Council and the European Commission.
