  • The thought behind celebrating this day is to educate everyone about the need for getting immunized with HIV vaccine.
  • More than 38 million people in the world are still struggling with this infection on daily basis.

HIV if not treated and looked after can progress into AIDS causing multi-organ failures and death. That is why patients with HIV must get immunized so that the spread of HIV is restricted and does not lead to AIDS. Even though the HIV/AIDS vaccine is not publicly accessible at present, researchers are working day and night to develop a potent vaccine in the future.

That makes the HIV vaccine highly essential and crucial so that public health against infectious diseases can be protected. And to ensure that the concept of AIDS immunization is taken seriously World AIDS Vaccination Day is celebrated every year on May 18.

Aim of World AIDS Vaccination Day

The thought behind celebrating this day is to educate everyone about the need to get immunized with the HIV vaccine . Even though there has been rapid development in the field of treatment regarding HIV more than 38 million people in the world are still struggling with this infection daily and many new people are getting infected every year. This is where a vaccine can work wonders as it can be used as a powerful tool to prevent new infections as well as control HIV spread.

By observing this day the medical fraternity also wants to encourage scientists to continue their aggressive research and collaborate with different institutions so that an HIV vaccine can be developed faster. The reason why until now researchers have failed to develop such a vaccine is because the virus can mutate rapidly as well as evade the immune system of the body.

It is hence a big challenge for the vaccine developers to come up with a solution that will break this ability of HIV so that immunization against AIDS becomes possible.

Even then they are trying their best to come up with a vaccine that will inhibit the progress of HIV and help such patients lead a normal life without fear.
