Is there a cure for HIV or hepatitis C? - Hepatitis C for Patients
There is no cure for HIV, but it often can be controlled. Newly approved treatments for hepatitis C infection are shorter, have fewer side effects, and now can cure the disease in most people. Keep in mind, prior hepatitis C infection does not induce an effective immune response and people can get infected with a different strain of hepatitis C after they have cleared the initial infection.
