then use a condom or stay in a monogamous relationship where both of you have tested

The vast majority of viral illnesses have NO cure...some examples are, hepatitis, the common cold, influenza.  That's the way viruses work, and HIV is no different.  Viral illnesses are treated by managing symptoms and trying to avoid complications and advancement of the disease.

A vaccine will probably eventually come to fruition, but I wouldn't expect to see it for quite a while...at least not a very effective one.

There is a vaccine for the HBV and one for the HCV is on it's way.Dr Robert Gallo the man who discovered HIV said there will not be a cure in his life time because the virus keeps on changing.Prevention is the only cure and this is what governments should be focusing on.

There is no cure and there is no vaccine. HIV is preventable, use condoms correctly and consistently and do not share works with other IV drug abusers.

Not sure what will happen with this as they haven't entered phase one trials yet.  But I think HIV research and treatment has really been amazing thus far.  
I agree. I take Biktarvy and I was undetectable within 2 weeks of consistently taking my meds. But I am truly praying for a cure. This disease has gone on long enough to not be eradicated. But I will say this, though it sucks having HIV but I am glad that it happened to me in this time because this virus has claimed the lives of so many people before me. I have faith that there will be a cure soon. I don't care how long it takes.
