How Can I Prevent HIV Transmission? (Infographic)
November 15, 2014

HIV can be transmitted when a bodily fluid with the virus comes into contact with a mucous membrane or damaged tissue, or is directly injected into the bloodstream, of another person. These fluids include: blood, semen, pre-ejaculate, rectal fluid, vaginal fluid and breast milk. Remember, assuming someone is HIV negative is not the best prevention strategy, but there are many other useful strategies -- before, during or after exposure to the virus.
