HIV/AIDS World Health Organization

7 hours ago

1. HIV can be transmitted via the exchange of a variety of body fluids from infected people, such as blood, breast milk, semen and vaginal secretions. HIV can also be transmitted from a mother to her child during pregnancy and delivery. Individuals cannot become infected through ordinary day-to-day contact such as kissing, hugging, shaking hands, or sharing personal objects, food or water. It is important to note that people with HIV who are taking ART and are virally suppressed do not transmit HIV to their sexual partners. Early access to ART and support to remain on treatment is therefore critical not only to improve the health of people with HIV but also to prevent HIV transmission.

Public health experts are especially important because there’s still a lot of misinformation surrounding HIV/AIDS. Avert,a UK-based HIV charity, points out several myths that still persist about HIV and AIDS. For example, many people are still confused about how the virus is spread. A lot of people don’t realize, for example, t...
