AIDS Facts

  • Though Human Immunodeficiency Virus is known to be transmitted only when the blood or blood products of an infected person come into contact with the blood of a healthy person, it is also found in the Saliva of the infected person in small amounts.
  • The Virus can be transmitted from an infected mother to a child during pregnancy or delivery and while breast-feeding.
  • The HIV test of an infected person can show false negative results until the person develops anti-bodies against the virus. So we advise you to take HIV test every 3 to 6 months if you think you may be infected.
  • The HIV infected person may develop severe flu like symptoms, diarrhea, night sweats within 2-3 weeks of exposure and these may disappear in weeks. Or the person may not experience any symptoms at all.
  • It is not the Virus that kills the infected person but opportunistic infections that the infected person acquires due to immune deficiency caused by HIV.
