is it true that there has been cures for hiv but hidden by governments because of the potential loss of income through anti retroviral drugs?

Myths: Nope. not in any way is this common myth true. We are now thirty years into the epidemic and those treated effectively are not functionally HIV negative. The recent advances leading to cure in Hep C give us even more hope that the variety of research in the world focusing on HIV cure can bring us this hopeful opportunity within the next ten years.
