How to Prevent HIV/AIDS?

Q:

How to prevent HIV/AIDS?

A:

  • If you are not sure whether your partner is HIV negative, use condoms correctly before you have sex in any way.
  • Use only water-based lubricants with condoms. Oil-based lubricants can weaken latex and may make it break.
  • If your partner is HIV positive, talk to your healthcare provider about pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), which involves taking medication to prevent you from HIV if you’re at high risk. You still need to use condoms even though you take PrEP.
  • Avoid being exposed to anything (such as needles or knives) that might be polluted with infected blood.
  • Don’t share needles or injection facilities with others.
