HIV is transmitted by the following body fluids:
This is possible in several ways:
Unsecured sex with an HIV-infected person. Unsecured sex refers to sexual contact, which does not include the use of condoms or biomedical prophylaxis (i. e., the use of condoms or the prevention of the disease). In addition, the Commission is responsible for the prevention of occupational diseases such as treatment as prophylaxis (TasP), pre-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) or post-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).
Sharing needles, syringes or other injectable equipment with an HIV-infected person.
Transmission between mother and child. A baby born as a result of HIV infection may become infected with the virus before or during childbirth or by breastfeeding after childbirth.
Transfer in healthcare settings. Healthcare workers with HIV infectious HIV are infected in the workplace, usually after getting stuck in needles or sharp objects containing HIV blood.
Transmission by blood donation or clotting agents. However, this is currently very rare in countries where blood is tested for the presence of HIV antibodies, including the United States.
