Using condoms consistently and correctly during sexual intercourse helps prevent the sexual transmission of HIV

Safer Sex Practices

Needle Exchange Programs

Providing clean needles and syringes reduces the risk of HIV transmission among people who inject drugs

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)

To avoid getting HIV, people who use PrEP take medicine (generally a mix of tenofovir and emtricitabine) before they might be exposed to it.

Early Detection and Treatment

Regular testing can detect HIV early. Antiretroviral therapy (ART) can contain the virus, decrease illness progression, and stop transmission if identified early.

Preventing Mother-to-Child Transmission

Women who are pregnant and have HIV can take antiretroviral drugs to lower their risk of passing the virus to their kids during labor and breastfeeding.

Education and Awareness

Promoting awareness, education, and destigmatizing HIV/AIDS contribute to prevention efforts.
