May 18th is HIV Vaccine Awareness Day (HVAD), led by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the National Institutes of Health. We spoke to Dr. Carl Dieffenbach at NIH, who had this to say about HIV Vaccine Awareness Day:

“[On Vaccine Awareness Day] we can take a moment to acknowledge the study participants who have given their time, their energy, . . .  to the study of HIV vaccines.”

  2. Jonas Vilane says:

    Indeeed this is a wonderful job and it needs every one to put a hand on. America alone can not win the strugle. What help can be given to African countries such as Swaziland who are very small in sieze but in the top four in the African region with high HIV infection. I can suggest that such progerms can be introduced and tasks given to NGOs not Govt for trasparance.
