National HIV Vaccine Awareness Day

May 18 marks the annual observance of HIV Vaccine Awareness Day, established to honor U.S. President Bill Clinton's 1997 declaration emphasizing the need for a truly effective preventive HIV vaccine to combat the threat of AIDS. On this day, we acknowledge the dedication of volunteers, community members, health professionals, and scientists collaborating to develop an HIV vaccine. The occasion serves as a platform to educate communities on the significance of research into preventive HIV vaccines. The ultimate goal is to highlight the crucial role a safe and effective preventive HIV vaccine would play in bringing an end to the HIV pandemic.
