HIV / AIDS Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS HIV? HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus and it weakens the body’s immune system (your defense against infections). It is the virus that causes AIDS. The virus may be passed from one person to another when infected blood, semen or vaginal secretions come in contact with an uninfected person’s broken skin or mucous membranes. (A mucous membrane is wet, thin tissue found in certain openings to the human body, including the mouth, eyes, nose, vagina, rectum, and the opening of the penis.)

Partner Notification

Let's face it, having a sexually transmitted disease isn't fun and neither is telling all your sexual partners. STDs would be less common if people shared their diagnosis with all of their sexual partners so they could get tested too. Talking to your partners is important because it will help take care of your health, the health of your sex partners and the entire community.
