UNAIDS hopes believes that a cure for HIV/AIDS will be found within 10 years

The Joint United Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) believes a cure for AIDS will be found within 10 years.

Speaking at the 19th International AIDS Conference in Washington in the United States, UNAIDS executive director, Michel Sidibé, says that the current research studies have shown great progress in finding a possible cure for this disease.

Sidibé further says that, “We are seeing progress, what we need is to mobilise science, we need to continue to invest in research because without the cure, I don't think we'll eradicate, we can end but not eradicate this epidemic, we need cure or vaccine. How far are we? I personally feel that cure is not so far, functional cure is possible probably in the six to 10 years.”
