AbstractThe article identifies perceived resource and capacity building needs of research ethics committees (RECs) in Africa for the review of HIV vaccine trial protocols. The findings indicate that African RECs view their capacity to review HIV vaccine trial protocols as moderate to limited, although the rating was more optimistic among committees that had experience reviewing such protocols. The results also show the implications of poor funding for RECs.
