These experimental AIDS vaccines are the first from Africa to reach testing in people. The National Institutes of Health in the United States provided assistance. Testing with twelve people began earlier this year in Boston, Massachusetts. South Africa has more than five million people infected with HIV, the largest number of any country. South Africa officially launched the tests in July as the International AIDS Society held a conference in Cape Town. Other human trials of possible vaccines are taking place around the world. But during the conference, experts reported the first decrease in international financing for AIDS vaccine research.

GUAYAQUIL, Ecuador, 4 January 2007 — When Andrea, 20, discovered that her husband had HIV/AIDS, she immediately got tested. Already five months pregnant, she discovered that she was HIV-positive.

This extended interview is from the feature documentary, House of Numbers: Anatomy of an Epidemic. James (Jim) Chin has been at the forefront of public health epidemiology for decades. He works in public health surveillance and prevention of communicable diseases. He has studied the AIDS pandemic from the early 1980s in California — where he was responsible for surveillance and control of communicable diseases — to the late 1980s at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, where he was responsible for developing the methods and guidelines for global and regional HIV/AIDS surveillance. During his public health career, he has held leadership positions at state, national, and International organizations and received recognition for his work as an infectious disease epidemiologist. Since his resignation from the WHO Global Programme on AIDS in 1992, he has worked as an independent consultant for different international agencies to evaluate the patterns and prevalence of HIV in developing countries — primarily in Africa and Asia. Dr. Chin’s book The AIDS Pandemic: The Collision of Epidemiology with Political Correctness (2006), takes a critical look at HIV/AIDS estimates and the international response to AIDS.
