No, there is no current medication/treatment that can get rid of HIV/AIDS. However HAART (highly active anti-retro-viral therapy) has improved significantly and has the ability to reduce the load of HIV virus to an undetectable levels.


As for hopeful HIV patients (Berlin patient), a recent research of bone marrow transplant have yield some success in Germany and the patient had reportedly been cured but further analysis is being done since there was no conclusive proof.. The bone marrow donor has some kind of mutation that prevents the HIV virus from infecting CD4 T cells (Helper cells that is required in activating B cell to produce specific antibodies). However the application is not practical.


So in a sense....1 patient has been cured (Disputable) but generally, there are no effective cures up to date.
