    South African Child 'Cured' Of HIV

    Doctors have said a South African nine-year-old infected with HIV at birth has spent most of their life without needing any treatment, BBC reports.

    The child, whose identity is being protected, was given a burst of treatment shortly after birth.

    The US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases funded the study of babies born with HIV of which this child was a part.

    These babies have since been off drugs for eight-and-a-half years without symptoms or signs of active virus, according to Dr Anthony Fauci, the director of the institute.
