ICRW summarizes the findings of a research study that examined how gender issues influenced volunteers’ decisions to participate in AIDS vaccine research in Kenya and their experience of participation. These results may help facilitate the integration of women in vaccine research in similar settings. The study was conducted in Kenya in 2007 as a collaboration between ICRW, the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI) and the University of Nairobi.
