Abstract:Introducing the HIV vaccine trials to research naive populations, particularly those in resource-limited settings of less industrialized countries, may include many obstacles. The aim of the informed consent process is to inform potential participants; however, measuring the efficacy of this process remains a vital means of protecting vulnerable populations. Higher levels of education predicted successful performance on informed consent assessments. Efforts to measure appreciation in lieu of information retention of informed consent may mitigate the effects.
