World AIDS Day

1 December 2022

Today is World Aids Day, which offers a good opportunity to clear up misconceptions about the disease, which may lead to prejudice.

  1. HIV cannot be spread through touch, tears, sweat, saliva, or pee. It can only be spread through blood, semen, vaginal fluid or breast milk
  2. Mosquitos cannot spread HIV among humans
  3. HIV can be spread among heterosexual couples
  4. Treatment for HIV doesn’t involve taking dozens of pills a day – most only take 1-4 a day
  5. People with HIV can still safely have children
  6. Contracting HIV doesn’t mean your life is over – With treatment, it’s possible to live a long and healthy life, just like anyone else
