A: How is HIV Transmitted? HIV can be transmitted from an infected person to another through: ?Blood (including menstrual blood) ?S emen ?V aginal secretions ?Br east milk Blood contains the highest concentration of the virus, followed by se men, followed by v aginal fluids, followed by br east milk. * Activities That Allow HIV Transmission ?Unprotected s exual contact ?Direct blood
contact, including injection drug needles, blood transfusions, accidents in health care settings or certain blood products ?Mother to baby (before or during birth, or through breast milk) S exual intercourse: In the ge nitals and the rec tum, HIV may infect the mucous membranes directly or enter through cuts and sores caused during intercourse (many of which would be unnoticed). This is a high-risk practice. Oral s ex : The mouth is an inhospitable environment for HIV meaning the risk of HIV transmission through the throat, gums, and oral membranes. There are however, documented cases where HIV was transmitted orally. Sharing injection needles: An injection needle can pass blood directly from one person?s bloodstream to another. It is a very efficient way to transmit a blood-borne virus. Sharing needles is considered a high-risk practice. Mother to Child: It is possible for an HIV-infected mother to pass the virus directly before or during birth, or through breast milk. Breast milk contains HIV, and while small amounts of breast milk do not pose significant threat of infection to adults, it is a viable means of transmission to infants. - -
