If an effective treatment is developed for HIV that would prevent
AID's from developing, wouldn't we have given birth to a new
chronic disease? If so, how would it be prevented from being
passed on to the next generations? I am assuming that the
people who had it would want the same rights as anyone
with any other chronic disease.
Is anything other than a complete cure ethically right?

Just some thoughts.
