Thanks.

My view is once upon a time small pox, chicken pox, typhoid, tuberculosis, measles etc were considered life threating diseases but ultimately Medical researchers came with cure  & vaccines.

So, I am highly optimistic that with advancement of medical science & technology, there will be certainly a cure & vaccine for the above diseases.

Stem cell research could/may be one of them.

There are tools called "Internet Search Engines". Google is one of the best known. Lets see what it turns up about vaccines, for example:

Polio: http://www.who.int/features/factfiles/polio/en/

Ebola: http://www.who.int/news-room/feature-stories/detail/ebola-vaccine-provides-protection-and-hope-for-high-risk-communities-in-the-democratic-republic-of-the-congo

HIV: https://www.bbc.com/news/health-44738642

Diabetes: https://www.diabetes.org.uk/research/research-round-up/research-spotlight/research-spotlight-a-vaccine-for-type-1-diabetes

I will leave you to complete the apparently daunting task of doing a google search for the other diseases combined with the word "cure". 

(You probably also need to learn a little bit about how vaccines work and why they are not relevant to every possible malady.)

Vaccines basically insert an inactive "germ" in to our organism, this being creates a response in the human body by antibodies that connect with these antigens.

However this reaction is of lesser strength than an active being( in many cases). This reaction will create T memory cells that will know in a new exposition to the malady in question how to react and better destroy it.

Some ilnesses attack our immune system so in most cases we are harmless against said diseases unless we have been vaccinated, which implies that a vaccine to that malady exists.

When the Black Death attacked Europe, and being this disease one that attacks the immune system (i think) it killed around at least 25 million people through some time, but some people survived wich means if black death attacks again some people will survive

Most of them actually active but weakened.

The black death is a bacterium (Yersinia Pestis) and antibiotics works good against it.

Most of the childhood vaccines are attenuated, I think, but if we include all vaccines more are just using parts (+ adjuvants).
