World AIDS Vaccine Day is celebrated each year to raise awareness about the importance of HIV vaccinations in preventing HIV infection and AIDS. It is observed on May 18 each year and is also known as the HIV Vaccine Awareness Day.
This day is a chance to thank the volunteers, community members, health professionals, and scientists who are all working together to find a safe and effective preventive HIV vaccine. The day is also marked to educate communities about the importance of preventive HIV vaccine research.
HIV Vaccine Awareness Day pushes the medical community to recognise the need for new and effective technologies that can help to develop a comprehensive response to this life-threatening disease.
