To reduce the spread of HIV do not share body fluids such as blood or sperm. Never have in protected sexual intercourse with a person who is HIV positive or share needles with a drug user.

Make a personal decision to abstain from sex. Use sterile needles when needed. Share with people positive reasons to limit or continue limiting their sexual partners

HIV is spread through the exchange of bodily fluids, direct sexual contact and from the mother to child during birth or in breast milk. Therefore, to reduce the spread, its recommended to use a condom when engaging in sexual activity, remove any gloves that have been in contact with blood and not reuse any needles, in order to remove the danger of contact with contaminated blood.
