At the end of 2012, about 1.2 million people in the United States were living with HIV.
“HIV” stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus.
How Can I Get HIV? You can only get HIV through certain bodily fluids of someone with HIV (e.g. blood, semen, breast milk). HIV can be transmitted during unprotected sex; through sharing injecting equipment; from mother-to-baby during pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding; and through contaminated blood transfusions.
