How can I protect myself from HIV?
As you cannot know who has the virus, judging by their appearance, use a latex condom at every sexual encounter whether it is vaginal, anal or oral. Remember, once is enough. AIDS does not discriminate. Do not be shy, take initiative.
If you use drugs, always use your own syringe, needle or other equipment. Do not share with others.
Do not share with others objects with blood stains on them, such as toothbrushes or razors.
In case of a pregnancy, ask your doctor for information on HIV.
