HIV Cure: Have You Grown More Hopeful?

I'm profoundly more hopeful that we'll find a cure. Profoundly. When I first started in this field, it was the late 1980s, and I was in college, and it was all about doing health education around HIV. I've seen the evolution of blood testing, where you give more educational information; to where you do counseling around behavior changes; to where you're doing rapid testing; to where, now, community-based organizations are doing this work. The advances keep coming, and I am more and more confident that a cure is on the way.
