HOW CAN HIV BE PREVENTED?
Despite considerable investment and research, there is no HIV and AIDS vaccine. However, there are other ways that people can protect themselves from HIV infection.
HIV education needs to be culturally appropriate and can take place in various settings, for example lessons at school, media campaigns, or peer education.
PREVENTING SEXUAL TRANSMISSION OF HIV
‘Safer sex’ refers to things that a person can do to minimize their risk of HIV infection during sexual intercourse; most importantly, using condoms consistently and correctly.
A person can be certain that they are protected against HIV infection by choosing not to have sex at all, or by only doing things that do not involve any blood or sexual fluid from one person getting into another person’s body.
Effective sex education is important for providing young people with the knowledge and skills to protect themselves from sexual transmission of HIV.
PREVENTING TRANSMISSION OF HIV THROUGH BLOOD
Injecting drug users who share injecting equipment or works are at risk of HIV infection. Needle exchange programmes can help to prevent HIV transmission among drug users by providing clean needles and disposing of used ones.
PREVENTING MOTHER TO CHILD TRANSMISSION OF HIV
Mother-to-child transmission of HIV can be prevented by using antiretroviral drugs, which reduce the chances of a child becoming infected with HIV to less than 2 %. Once a child is born, safer infant feeding practices can also greatly reduce the risk of HIV being passed on from mother to child. This is why HIV testing in pregnancy is a crucial prevention measure.
