Woman only third person to be considered "cured" of HIV ---NYT

For a newspaper article, this one is a bit technical. But it's significant... we haven't generally heard the word "cure" used in connection with HIV except in a fairly negative cast lo these many years. I get it that many people have reservations and skepticism about the "miracles of modern medicine." But the fact remains that science-based Western medicine remains the best hope for millions upon millions of people who in traditional societies and lore would be condemned to painful early death.
