I already have HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C in mind, but I'll need a third one for an assignment. I just need either the name of the disease or the name of the virus, so any bit of information helps! Please and thank you =)

Rhinovirus (common cold). Too many variations in serotypes to be effective.

Hello Friends,

More people today have access to life-saving antiretroviral therapy for HIV/AIDS than ever before. Yet for every person who begins treatment for HIV infection, two to three others become newly infected. Treatment alone will not curtail the HIV/AIDS pandemic. To control and ultimately end this pandemic, we need a powerful array of proven HIV prevention tools that are widely accessible to all who would benefit from them.
Vaccines historically have been the most effective means to prevent and even eradicate infectious diseases. They safely and cost-effectively prevent illness, disability and death. Like smallpox and polio vaccines, a preventive HIV vaccine could help save millions of lives.

Thanks and Regards,
Lucy James
