Mississippi Baby “Cured” From HIV/AIDS

In 2013, the media broke some interesting HIV-related news. For the first time, a baby born with HIV was “cured” of the virus without taking AIDS meds for the recommended time after birth. That was later confirmed in a study published in November that found that the toddler is still HIV-negative.
