Once we get HIV, is there any chance to get rid of it?

Presently, there's no cure available for HIV infection. However, the virus can be treated using Antiretroviral therapy (ART), consisting of three or more antiretroviral drugs. ART doesn't cure the disease but prevents the infection from multiplying and reduces the amount of infection in the body. As a result, the immune system gets a chance to recover and prevents the infection from advancing to AIDS. Once diagnosed with HIV, the virus stays in your body for life.

How can one transmit HIV to the other person?

HIV can be transmitted via the exchange of a variety of body fluids from infected individuals, such as blood, semen, and vaginal secretions. Unprotected anal or vaginal sex puts individuals at greater risk of contracting HIV. The virus can be transmitted to the child from mother during pregnancy, breastfeeding, or birth. Sharing needles with infected persons can also transmit the infection.
