HIV is like herpes, you can never really call it cured, per se (at least with the current state of the art medicine), because it's a lysogenic virus and stays in the host cells. It just falls below dangerous levels.

The new treatment is basically the same as what we've been using (antivirals) -- just more of them and earlier use. The virus isn't gone from the body, just crippled so the risk of developing AIDS is essentially zero.

In case anyone was wondering.

I think it's good that he put cured in quotations. It's so people here don't get their hopes up in thinking the virus itself was 100% cured, like the last post that said one child was cured of HIV

Given the last two years of my life, that's a valid assumption.

It's because they've developed a new antiretroviral prevention protocol. It basically sucker punches the virus before it sets up shop, "functionally" curing it. Who knows for how long though.
