Q and A Forum: Four Points To Know About HIV Cure

Effective quality HIV care is possible when resources and interventions are made available to address vulnerability and barriers to risk-reduction. 

There is need to provide information, education and communication to inform best action against vulnerability and risk-reduction. 

Consistent treatment can control HIV and enable people to live a long and healthy life. This is reinforced by adherence to ARVs. 

Testing is the only way to know for sure if you have the virus.

Will there ever be a cure for HIV?

Researchers and scientists believe that we can find a cure for HIV. We know a lot about HIV, as much as certain cancers. Scientists are researching two types of cure: a functional cure and a sterilizing cure (there is no 'natural cure' or 'herbal cure') for HIV. (There will never be an AIDS cure because AIDS is a defining set of symptoms rather than a virus, like HIV.)
