The AIDS Vaccine Advocacy Coalition (AVAC) recently released its annual state of the field report, Big Data Real People. The report is AVAC’s annual advocacy analysis, which serves as an actionable statement of the strengths and weakness of HIV prevention data today and includes a roadmap that spans the next 12 months and beyond.
