Good point; it isn't a DIY or how-to question, and that's really what Answers is intended for.

What scientists do when they are allowed to work.
Some one will discover a fact that will have direct application
to your question.

Did you know our world publication of scientific papers is more then any one
can review in a lifetime.
So let's hope review committees have the wisdom to avoid jealousy and
communicate with each other .

Scientists have not yet discovered a medicine which will cure the disease... but that only answers "have they", not "can they". There's nothing theoretically impossible about it, it's just extremely difficult and currently remains an unsolved problem.

Scientists _have_ discovered medicines which help manage the symptoms of HIV. If the patients can afford those medicines, they can live much longer and in much greater comfort than they would without treatment. But that isn't a cure.

There have been huge strides in combating HIV. The problems lay in how it infects the body.

As a virus it invades the bodily cells and so is very hard to track and get the body immune system to kill it - eventually it so weakens the immune system that it is fairly safe and ultimately you die from simple things your body would normally fight off.

If it were easy it would already be in use. + Many of the HIV suffers are in remote places that do not have high l;level medical help eg Africa.
