The foundation partnered on two multi-year programmes, one with the Medical Research Council's Strategic Health Innovation Partnerships (SHIP) unit and the other with the University of Cape Town's Drug Discovery and Development Centre (H3-D).

The council would receive R125 million over three years to lead and fund research aimed at developing AIDS and TB vaccines, adding to the R130 million from the Department of Science and Technology and R60 million from the Department of Health.
