No, they STILL have HIV. Unless I missed the report about a cure.
Yes, they still have HIV. And the HIV cure that has been touted for about a dozen adults who received aggressive doses of anti-virals still have it; the difference is that the virus didn’t get as big of a toe-hold at the time of infection, so the body can fight it. Some of these people no longer need retro-virals, but they still carry and can spread the disease.
The only “cure” are the children born virus free to infected mothers and the bone marrow transplant patient who receive marrow from someone with genetic immunity with the virus.
