Here are a few facts about HIV:

  • HIV stands for the Human Immunodeficiency Virus.  It is a virus which attacks the body's immune system - the body's defence against disease.
     
  • HIV can be passed on through infected bodily fluids, most commonly via sex without a condom or by sharing infected needles, syringes or other injecting drug equipment.
     
  • There are now more people than ever living with the HIV in the UK - around 100,000 - with a quarter of those people are unaware they have the virus.
     
  • Over 90% of people with HIV in the UK were infected through sexual contact.
     
  • You can now get tested for HIV using a saliva sample.
     
  • HIV is not passed on through spitting biting or sharing utensils.
     
  • Only 1% of babies born to HIV positive mothers have HIV.
     
  • You can get the results of an HIV test in just 15-20 minutes.
