HIV Does Not Discriminate

HIV/AIDS cares not the color of your skin, your nationality, age, or income. It affects everyone, even those who have not contracted the virus. It stresses personal relationships, and without proper awareness can alienate friends and family.

Mothers & Newborns

A woman bearing a child, can pass on the infection to their children, while they are in the womb.

Nursing mothers can pass the disease on through breastfeeding.

International Considerations

If you have had a blood transfusion or operation in a developing country at any time, you are or were prone to contracting the disease.  If you had a blood transfusion in the United States between 1978 and 1985, get tested.

HIV travels a variety of avenues

Do you know of anyone who has injected drugs or shared needles with someone else? Drug users are not the only people who might share needles. For example, people with diabetes who inject insulin or draw blood to test glucose levels might share needles. This is a common way in which people contract HIV/AIDS.
