Saliva cannot transmit the virus. There are only four fluids in the human body that are capable of transmitting HIV. They are:
2. Breast Milk
3. Semen including pre-ejaculatory fluid
4. Vaginal Secretions
Be sure to check out our section on What is HIV. It contains a wealth of reliable, up to date information on HIV and how it is transmitted.
