Key Messages
  • By knowing the correct ways of how HIV is transmitted you can protect yourself and your family. HIV is transmitted by:

    • Unprotected sex

    • Sharing of contaminated needles- If a person shares the needle or syringe used by/on an infected person, either for injecting drugs or drawing blood or for any other purpose involving piercing, s/he can get infected

    • Infected mother to child

    • Transfusion with infected blood

  • In most cases, HIV is passed from one person to another through unprotected sex. Fluids of an infected person such as semen, vaginal fluid or blood are passed into the body of another person.

  • HIV can be spread by using contaminated and unsterilized needles, syringes, knives and or blades. Any instrument used to pierce or cut a person's skin must be fully sterilized by rinsing with bleach or boiling in water. Injections should only be given by a trained health worker using an AD syringe.

  • You cannot get HIV from working, socializing or living with someone infected with HIV. Touching, hugging, shaking hands, eating together, coughing and sneezing also do not give you HIV. HIV is not spread by mosquitoes or other insects.
Discussions and Frequently Asked Questions

 What is the difference between HIV and AIDS?

Key Response: HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is the virus that causes the disease AIDS (Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome). AIDS is a condition in which a person is affected by a series of diseases because of a weakened immune system. It is preventable and treatable, but incurable. A person can be infected with HIV for a long time before developing AIDS.


 What are the symptoms of HIV and AIDS?

Key Response: When a person is infected with HIV, there is usually no change in that person's health for quite a few years. The person shows no visible signs of being sick and so has no symptoms that s/he has HIV. But during this time, the person can still pass on HIV to other people. When a person starts to get sick with AIDS- related diseases, they start to show symptoms. These symptoms can include weight loss, prolonged fever, frequent diarrhoea, mouth lesions, and other infections.


 Address the common myths people often have concerning transmission of HIV.

HIV is mainly transmitted through unprotected sex. Blood transfusions pose very little risk. Yet many people think this is the most common way HIV is transmitted. HIV is also not transmitted through casual contact consisting of: working, socializing or living with someone infected with HIV. Touching, hugging, shaking hands, eating together, coughing and sneezing also do not give you HIV. HIV is not spread by mosquitoes or other insects.
