Many steps towards finding a cure for the hideous disease that causes AIDS, HIV have been achieved over the past 10 years. A vaccine for HIV has already been tested in Thailand. Despite only having 30% effectiveness it was a major breakthrough.
We've come a far way, from the days of the GRIDS buzzword and Ryan White, to today's partially effective treatments for HIV and AIDS. Survivability for those who suffer from both diseases has now increased to rates we never thought to dream about.
Yet there still is not a cure, there is no Vaccine. And it is the American Government who seems set to fix that issue.
