Best Answer

A person can become infected with AIDS through one of three ways.

1. They have sex with an infected person, and get HIV, which eventually leads to AIDS.

2. They get it from their mother. It passes along through the blood, and a HIV infected mother could have her baby infected with HIV, which, again, leads to AIDS.

3. Sharing a needle (I.E. drugs, Diabetes shots, etc.) with a person who has AIDS. They have the HIV virus, which turns into AIDS after some time.
