Fake stories about people contracting #HIV from food circulate quickly on social media. HIV doesn't survive long outside of the human body and the virus would quickly be broken down by stomach acid and saliva. Myths like these further stigma and discrimination towards people living with HIV #knowthefacts.

Condoms are still the number 1 way to prevent the transmission of #HIV and STIs. Washing after having unprotected sex does not protect you! #safersex

There are several stages in the life cycle of #HIV and these can happen over many years. Antiretroviral treatment works by interrupting the cycle and protecting your immune system.

Different drugs may be offered to you, depending on which stage of the HIV life cycle the virus is at when you're diagnosed.
