In one sentence it is like living with any other healthy person. HIV is a disease and should be treated like one as we treat Flu, Diabetes, TB and others. One can easily lead a normal life with an HIV person. You can eat together, play together, share your meals just as you do with any of your friends or family members. There is no need to be worried about “What if I got infected!!!!!!”


Because there are limited ways in which HIV can be transmitted and 30 years of research proves that HIV cannot be transmitted by casual contact or mosquito bites


Ways of HIV transmission:


1. Sexual Contact ( heterosexual and homosexual)


2. By blood and blood products ( Blood transfusions, Drug abusers, health care, workers-accidental etc.)


3. Infected mother to infant ( not during pregnancy but, during delivery)


4. Via breast milk
