What are the ways of contracting AIDS?

AIDS is almost always transmitted in the following ways:
• during sexual contact with an infected person;
• through insufficiently sterilized medical instruments (most often these are syringe needles used by drug addicts, since it is customary to use a single syringe in their environment);
• during transfusion of infected blood or the use of drugs prepared on its basis;
• In a significant proportion of infected pregnant women, the virus can be transmitted to the fetus through the placenta.
No cases of AIDS infection are known through food that has been cooked or served on the table by an infected person, through food products that infected people have come into contact with, or when they are in close proximity to such people. AIDS can not be infected with kisses, handshakes, hugs, using a public shower, toilet, pool, household items, through blood-sucking insects (HIV does not propagate in their body).

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
