How Is HIV Passed From One Person to Another?

People get HIV through contact with body fluids that come from someone who has it. The most common ways that someone can get HIV are by:

  • Having sex (anal, vaginal, or oral) with a person who has HIV without using a Condom
  • Sharing drug needles or other drug equipment with someone who has HIV
  • Using the same needle as someone with HIV when you get a tattoo

Women with HIV can pass it to their babies before or during birth, and through breastfeeding.
