ABOUT HIV

Some people think they’re never going to contract HIV. But are you positive you’re not positive?Maybe you didn’t take precautions that one time. Maybe you didn’t know the entire sexual history of the last person you were sexually involved with. That hardly puts you at risk, does it?Vulnerability to HIV is caused by a variety of factors beyond the risks you take. It may also be determined by pre-existing conditions that result from your socio-economic status, your upbringing, your education, your ethno-cultural background, and your experience with grief, loss, stigma, and discrimination.
