Best Answer

Anyone can contract HIV, the virus that can lead to AIDS. HIV can be transmitted through contact with infected blood, semen, vaginal secretions, or breast milk. The most common modes of transmission are:

Unprotected sexual contact with an infected person

Sharing needles or syringes with an infected person

From an infected mother to her child during pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding.

While anyone can contract HIV, certain groups are at higher risk, including:

Men who cross with men

People who inject drugs

Sex workers and their clients

People who have multiple sexual partners

People who have unprotected sex

People with other sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

Infants born to mothers with HIV.

It's important to note that HIV cannot be transmitted through casual contact such as hugging, kissing, or sharing utensils. HIV is not spread through mosquito bites, and it cannot be contracted from donating blood.

It's also important to remember that HIV can be managed with medication, and many people with HIV are able to live long, healthy lives with proper treatment and care.
