NOTICE: The project that is the subject of this report was approved by the Governing Board of the National Research Council, whose members are drawn from the councils of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine. The members of the committee responsible for the report were chosen for their special competences and with regard for appropriate balance.
This workshop summary was prepared by the Institute of Medicine's Roundtable for the Development of Drugs and Vaccines Against AIDS, chaired by Barton F. Haynes and Paul A. Volberding and directed by Leslie M. Hardy. The document reports major themes of the workshop discussions; these themes, however, do not represent policy statements by the Institute of Medicine.
The report has been reviewed by a group other than the authors according to procedures approved by a Report Review Committee consisting of members of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine.
The Institute of Medicine was chartered in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences to enlist distinguished members of appropriate professions in the examination of policy matters pertaining to the health of the public. In this, the Institute acts under both the Academy's 1863 congressional charter responsibility to be an advisor to the federal government and its own initiative in identifying issues of medical care, research, and education. Dr. Kenneth I. Shine is president of the Institute of Medicine.
The Roundtable is supported by the American Foundation for AIDS Research, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, the U.S. Army, the U.S. Public Health Service, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
