AIDS Policy Project to Launch First AIDS Cure Day

Saturday, October 5, will mark the first AIDS Cure Day, according to a statement by the AIDS Policy Project, which launched this new awareness day. The goal of this annual event is to push for a cure for AIDS in this generation. The AIDS Policy Project will be organizing and facilitating teach-ins on cure research and activism across the country and worldwide. The group will be offering a teach-in guide and other support materials, as well as an online webinar and a volunteer hotline on the day of the event.

Michael, is sad that you think that way, not all hiv + people are on medication,only 75% of hiv + are on meds,i honestly think that if they find the cure they will get rich then.i am bery excited and i pray God to help those scientifics working on a cure...years ago was imposible to have hiv negative babies,have a healthy normal life,we only dreamed about a cure but now is possible to make a real! Inform yourself

You fools. There will never be a cure for HIV. Keeping individuals infected with HIV alive through the use of drugs that promise life only through expensive compliance will NEVER replace the financial model large Pharms relies on. Why do you bother to create a false sense of hope for so many when a cure is not going to happen? Your points of view are incredibly socially irresponsible.

This is great that everyone is inspired to campaign for the CURE. I feel that efforts like this should also be geared towards fighting Stigma and introducing to the world the fact that Hiv positive people do not always have AIDS and are having babies, swimming in pools, sitting at desks next to you at work... and just living normal, happy, healthy lives. Unfortunately in silence among the non-positive because they are too scared to tell and the non-positives too know. Break the silence.
