Scientist Can it be cured?
There is no cure for Aids, but there are drugs that can slow down the HIV virus, and slow down the damage to the immune system.

But there is no way to get all the HIV out of your body.

There are other drugs that people can take to prevent or to treat some of the infections.

Scientists are hopeful that a vaccine against the HIV virus will be found in the near future.
