Aids that kills 2.1 million people every year globally can be contained with in five year by testing everybody in high risk regions and providing immediate treatment for those found to be HIV positive,a leading scientist has claimed. according to Dr brain williams of the South African(sacema) once aggressive treatment programme would not only save millions of lives but would also prevent transmission of HIV that affects over 33 million people worldwide annually.the question is can we use anti-retroviral drugs not only to keep people alive but also to stop transmission? i believe that if we use them effectively we could stop transmission within five year. can it be possible? what are you want to say about it?

According to my studies about HIV, anti-retroviral just contained the spread of virus within the body of the victim. But, still s/he can transmit the virus to anyone s/he make contact with. Somehow your question is still a good question for scientist...
