Transmission

Home » HIV » Transmission

In this section you will find information on how HIV is transmitted.

As there are three main ways that HIV is transmitted the section is split into three pages:
Sexual transmission
Blood to blood transmission
Mother to baby transmission

Sexual transmission details which sexual fluids HIV is carried in and which sexual activities are considered to be a risk for HIV transmission.

This information is the same whether you are a man or a woman having sex with men or women.
