UNAIDS Calls For Increase In Research, Investment To Develop Effective HIV Vaccine

UNAIDS: UNAIDS urges a scaling up of HIV vaccine research to stop new infections
“On HIV Vaccine Awareness Day, 18 May, UNAIDS is calling for an increase in research and investment to find an effective vaccine to protect people against HIV and stop new HIV infections. In 2016, around 1.8 million people were newly infected with HIV and although the number of new infections has declined in recent years, the world is still far from achieving the UNAIDS Fast-Track Target of reducing new HIV infections to fewer than 500,000 by 2020…” (5/17).
