HIV Vaccine Awareness Day

This year is the 21st anniversary of HIV Vaccine Awareness Day (HVAD). Advocates mark progress in the search for an AIDS vaccine each year on May 18. We recognize the “breadth and potency” of the current research landscape and the many events that will happen around the globe on this momentous day. We want to keep you in the loop. (Have an HVAD-related event or resource to share? Email us!)

HVAD Webinar

On Thursday, May 17, AVAC’s HVAD 2018 webinar told the story of the current state of HIV vaccine research from two perspectives. Dr. Sandhya Vasan of the Military HIV Research Program in Thailand provided her perspectives on the world of HIV vaccine research since RV144: where have we come and where are we going? Mark Hubbard, a veteran vaccine advocate and community representative for HIV research in Nashville, Tennessee offered his take from a community and advocacy perspective: what are today’s current successes and challenges, and how are community members pushing the HIV vaccine agenda? Listen to the webinar here.

HVAD Toolkit

We created a toolkit to help you understand the current state of HIV vaccine research and to help you conduct outreach of your own. We’re especially excited this year about a set of infographics that explain key aspects of vaccine research—trial participant and enrollment numbers, global funding, trials timelines and more.
