  4. In the opinion of the Principal Investigator or designee and based on Assessment of Informed Consent Understanding results, has understood the information provided and potential impact and/or risks linked to vaccination and participation in the trial; written informed consent will be obtained from the volunteer before any study-related procedures are performed
  5. Willing to undergo HIV testing, risk reduction counselling and receive HIV test results
  6. All volunteers born female engaging in sexual activity that could lead to pregnancy must commit to use an effective method of contraception for 4 months following investigational product administration

  8. All volunteers born female must be willing to undergo urine pregnancy tests at time points indicated in the Schedule of Procedures (Appendix A and B)
  9. All sexually active volunteers born male, regardless of reproductive potential, must be willing to use an effective method of contraception (such as consistent condom use) from the day of first vaccination until at least 4 months after the last vaccination to avoid exposure of partners to investigational product in ejaculate and to prevent conception with female partners
