My sister Miranda, died of AIDS in 2007 at the age of 35, a year older than I am now. She was a mother to three boys who had yet to reach their teens when she took her last breath.

Her statement comes after a PhD student from the university, Jinal Bhiman, published a study that has significant implications for the development of an AIDS vaccine.
