Ending AIDS will require using all the tools we have, and more: A vaccine.

HIV Vaccine Awareness Day (HVAD) on 18 May commemorates U.S. President Bill Clinton’s 1997 declaration: that “Only a truly effective, preventive HIV vaccine can limit and eventually eliminate the threat of AIDS.”

This year marks at a turning point in that effort. Visit our HVAD microsite learn more about the new developments in HIV vaccines and to share the news on social media.
