The HIV Vaccine Awareness Day concept originated from a speech by U.S. President Bill Clinton on May 18, 1997. He emphasized the importance of developing a vaccine for HIV within the coming decade, saying: “Only a truly effective, preventive HIV vaccine can limit and eventually eliminate the threat of AIDS.”
