Q and A


Why are scientists not concentrating on finding a cure ?

Why are the scientists concentrating on making people aware and not concentrating on finding a cure ?


Scientists – and other people too – are working in lots of differtent areas: treatment, prevention and cure.

It isn’t one thing or another. Imagine if all the work on treatment stoped and a cure is not then found for 30 years. Actually, this is a bit like vaccine research. Although some people promised a vaccine in two years, then five, ten and twenty years, we still don’t have one.

But we do have effective treatment that gives us near-normal life expectancy.

This weekend a special conference on HIC cure research is held just before the large HIV conference in Durban. See this link for details.
