AIDS and the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) have risen to the status of main causes of death and disease morbidity in the developed world since their discovery in the early 1980s. In light of the first discovery and more than 78 million individuals have contracted the disease, and more than 39 million people have died from AIDS-related complications. Since the peak in 2005, AIDSrelated mortality have decreased by 35 percent. There have been six human trials of HIV vaccine effectiveness. In spite of the fact that there are numerous effective prevention and treatment options, researchers have long been enthusiastic about HIV vaccine as the ultimate solution for HIV prevention and control. AIDS was found to be caused by HIV. It's been announced that an AIDS vaccine would be tested within two years by the United States' HHS Secretary Margaret Heckler.
