Seth Berkley: HIV and flu -- the vaccine strategy

Seth Berkley explains how smart advances in vaccine design, production and distribution are bringing us closer than ever to eliminating a host of global threats -- from AIDS to malaria to flu pandemics.

Epidemiologist Seth Berkley is leading the charge to develop a vaccine against HIV -- and to make sure vaccines are available for those living in the developing world.

The campaign to end HIV/AIDS involves a raft of social and behavioral changes -- but as Seth Berkley knows, we'll never completely vanquish the disease until we have a vaccine. To move the needle, in 1996 Berkley, a medical doctor with a legendary globe-trotting career in international health, founded the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), a nonprofit that is working to develop preventive HIV vaccines by investing in HIV/AIDS vaccine research, development and testing.

He has worked for the Center for Infectious Diseases of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and for the Carter Center, where he was assigned as an epidemiologist at the Ministry of Health in Uganda; he played a key role in Uganda’s national HIV sero-survey and helped develop its National AIDS Control programs. In 2009, Berkley was named to Time's list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World.
