How is HIV/AIDS transmitted?

Posted by Meeting Point Hoima On 11:02 AM No comments

HIV enters the body through open cuts, sores or breaks in the skin, through mucous membranes, such as those inside the anus or vagina, or through direct injection. There are several ways by which this can happen:
  • Unprotected sex with an infected person.
  • Through infected blood by sharing needles, razor blades and sharp objects contaminated by blood.
  • From infected mothers to babies during pregnacy, delevery and through breast milk.
