Writer's Block: AIDS Walk

Do you think there will be a cure for AIDS in your lifetime? Why or why not?


Check New Scientist's HIV and AIDS section:

http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn20692-one-cheap-pill-protects-healthy-people-from-hiv.html
http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn20478-antiviral-drugs-stop-hiv-spreading-to-sexual-partners.html
http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn20468-vaccine-protects-against-monkey-version-of-hiv.html
http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg20928023.300-genetic-treatment-closes-door-on-hiv.html

They make new progress against HIV and AIDS practicallly every week. There has been so many interesting discoveries just in the brief period I've been following the magazine, I'd be surprised if they didn't make the breakthrough within the next few years.

That said, even when they do, it's hard to imagine that becoming widely available to the most stricken regions. No one will pay for the vaccinations like malaria that would prevent thousands and thousands of deaths in poor regions, even when it's so easily preventable. It's not even hugely expensive, either.
