A cure. The only way to get to zero is to make sure it's not happening anymore. Once we develop a vaccine, people will get it like chicken pox: You get vaccinated for it while you're a kid, thus you won't be exposed to it when you're a little bit older. If we're talking about really getting down to zero, I think prevention is always going to be part of it. But part of a comprehensive preventive approach is actually developing a vaccine so that we can no longer pass it person-to-person.
