Positive Living

Having correct information is key to understanding and preventing HIV, but there are many myths and misconceptions. 

Do you know the facts about HIV?

 How much do you really know about HIV?

  • There is no cure for HIV and AIDS
  • HIV and AIDS are not the same thing. HIV damages the immune system and someone is said to have AIDS when they develop HIV-related illnesses
  • Unprotected sex is the most common way to contract HIV
  • You can not transmit HIV through touch. Or by shaking hands, working in the same office or sharing utensils
  •  The only way you can be sure of your status is by taking an HIV test.

Other ways you can contract HIV

  • Injecting drugs, using an unsterilised needle or syringe that have been used by someone with HIV
  • From a mother living with HIV (who is not receiving antiretroviral treatment) to her baby during pregnancy, labour, or through breastfeeding.
