The International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI) has published a policy statement welcoming the proposal for an advance market commitment.

To develop and ensure widespread use of a preventive AIDS vaccine, governments and companies around the globe will have to mobilize financial resources and scientific talent on an unprecedented scale. This will be best achieved through a combination of "push" and "pull" measures and high-level political support.
