Precautions can you take to protect
against the spread of AIDS
- Limiting your number of sexual partners, never sharing needles, and using condoms correctly and consistently.
- Reduce the number of people you have sex with. The number of sex partners you have affects your HIV risk. The more partners you have, the more likely you are to have a partner with HIV whose viral load is not suppressed or to have a sex partner with a sexually transmitted disease. Both of these factors can increase the risk of HIV transmission.
- Male circumcision reduces the risk that a man will get HIV from an infected female partner, and also lowers the risk of other sexually transmitted infections
- If you are living with HIV, you can greatly lower your risk of transmitting HIV to your baby by taking antiretroviral therapy (ART) during pregnancy, labor, and delivery; having a C-section; and avoiding breastfeeding.
- Never share needles, syringes, or other injection works.
- Be careful not to touch another person’s blood.
- Dispose of needles and syringes safely after one use. Use a sharps
container or make sure to keep used needles and syringes away from other
