To support additional sputum sample collection as part of a Phase IIb trial of MTBVAC, a novel tuberculosis vaccine.

Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $796,878 over five years to the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative to support additional sputum sample collection as part of a Phase IIb trial of MTBVAC, a novel tuberculosis vaccine.

This falls within Open Philanthropy’s focus area of global health R&D.
