My brother will be moving in with my Mom soon and he is HIV positive. What precautions should my Mom take?

Since HIV is transmitted only in infected body fluids, such as blood and semen, the only thing that your mother should be cautious about is handling such fluids.
Otherwise, there is essentially no risk to household contacts of persons living with HIV. BY
