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. - -
