Did you know:

• Every 12 seconds someone is newly infected with HIV
• 80% of all HIV transmission is sexual
• 60% of people living with HIV don’t know they’re infected.

• There are 33million people living with HIV globally
• HIV is transmitted through blood, sexual fluids and mother to child
• HIV is not transmitted through tears, sweat, saliva or mosquitoes

If you’re having sex the only way to protect yourself from HIV is to use a condom each and every time. No other form of contraception protects against HIV and other STIs. Unprotected anal and vaginal sex can both transmit HIV if one partner is HIV+ Unprotected oral sex also carries a risk, but this risk is significantly lower.
