As with many diseases, aids could be cured in a single generation if people quit passing it to others. Hoping for cures from medicine is only a stop gap solution. The example of TB is what will happen if we treat aids like some are doing with TB. There have been a few hundred cases of totally drug resistant TB in countries. TB is much more easy to transmit to others. We know how the aids virus is transmitted. Early scares of mosquitoes and blood splatter in eyes have shown that aids isn't very viral so far.

It wouldn't be cured, because the people with AIDS would die of it. It would however be eradicated in that there would be no more HIV to transmit to others.

If you become a politician I would like to see how you would actually be able to do what you want.

I think that you need to do much more to eradicate this disease than you think.

TB is more contagious, but not that contagious. You need prolonged close contact with a person with an active, untreated infection to get TB. There are also TB masks that you can wear in case you cannot avoid such exposure.
