ABSTRACT
The article discusses the findings of the 2006 Report on the Global AIDS Epidemic released by the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS. The report has revealed an estimated 38.6 million people worldwide are currently living with HIV. The report has suggested the need for a vaccine that trains the immune system to recognize and protect against a disease or other infectious agent to help prevent HIV/AIDS.
