University of Cape Town (UCT)

The University of Cape Town (UCT), through the South African Tuberculosis Vaccine Initiative (SATVI) and the Vaccines for Africa Initiative (VACFA), is playing a critical role in facilitating an African involvement and perspective into the COMMVAC project. UCT aspires to become a premier academic meeting point between South Africa, the rest of Africa and the world. Taking advantage of expanding global networks and our distinct vantage point in Africa, we are committed, through innovative research and scholarship, to grapple with the key issues of our natural and social worlds. We aim to produce graduates whose qualifications are internationally recognised and locally applicable, underpinned by values of engaged citizenship and social justice. SATVI, based at UCT's Faculty of Health Sciences, is the largest dedicated TB vaccine research group on the African continent. Its mission is the development of new and effective vaccination strategies against tuberculosis (TB). A new, effective, affordable TB vaccine has the potential to save millions of lives each year world-wide. The vision of VACFA, an initiative to advocate for the uptake of vaccines in Africa, is "An Africa free of vaccine-preventable diseases" .
