Guest Opinion: Almost 40 years later, still no AIDS cure in sight
Laurie Garrett in her 2018 article, "Welcome to the Next Deadly AIDS Pandemic." "The two greatest resource needs receive little rhetorical or financial attention: a vaccine and a cure ...," she writes, "it is impossible to imagine global control of the virus continuing to rest primarily on lifelong, daily drug treatment for tens of millions of people." After living with HIV for 20 years, I'm fed up with AIDS organizations and drug companies boasting about one pill after another that can suppress the virus, but can't eradicate it. Many people endure uncomfortable side effects from these drugs.
