    Yes it would. Sadly, I have been to far too many funerals for friends who died from AIDS.

    Let's hope science finds a cure!

    There's also a drug available in Asia and kinda in Australia being hyped as a cure.

    Activists shout out for PrEP in Melbourne

    "The ads appear as new research both here and overseas suggest a daily dose of the Truvada pill drastically reduces the likelihood that HIV will be transmitted.

    Many HIV experts across Australia now hope the medication will be funded locally for use by at-risk communities – like sexually active gay men – to help end new HIV infections.

    For example, San Francisco has significantly increased access to PrEP in the past three years and there’s been a 30% decrease in new HIV transmissions in that time.

    Here in Australia, Truvada is currently not yet approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration, 
nor listed on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. This means access to PrEP is 
limited and expensive."
