Two case studies with accompanying videos (filmed and edited by Malcolm Linton with commentary by Jon Cohen) highlight efforts to combat corruption in Uganda and aggressive treatment and prevention programs in Botswana; a pair of Perspectives looks at progress and challenges of microbicide and HIV vaccine research; and related podcast interviews discuss trends in research funding and the future of vaccine research.
