HIV Vaccine Awareness Day
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 18 of May, repeating indefinitely
National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) leads this observance.
This day is a chance to thank the volunteers, community members, health professionals, and scientists working together to find a safe and effective preventive HIV vaccine. It is also a time to educate communities about the importance of preventive HIV vaccine research.
