HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus spread through contact with infected body fluids (blood semen, vaginal fluid, breast milk). Over time, HIV can cause AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). The human body can not get rid of HIV/AIDS.
Anyone can get HIV/AIDS.

HIV/AIDS can be transmitted by:                                                                                          

  • Having unprotected sex                                                                                                 
  • Sharing injection drug supplies (needles, cookers, cottons, water)
  • Infants born to infected mothers

HIV/AIDS can NOT be transmitted by:

  • Air or water
  • Insects or pets
  • Sharing toilets, food or drinks
  • Saliva, sweat, tears, or closed-mouth kissing

A rapid HIV test can be done which involves a finger-stick and takes about 20 minutes for results. This test detects HIV antibodies. The testing is confidential. Contact your local public health office for testing. Image result for HIV
