Other body fluids and waste products—like feces, nasal fluid, saliva, sweat, tears, urine, or vomit—don’t contain enough HIV to infect you, unless they have blood mixed in them and you have significant and direct contact with them.
HIV is transmitted through body fluids in very specific ways:
During sexual contact: When you have anal, oral, or vaginal sex with a partner, you will usually have contact with your partner’s body fluids. If your partner has HIV, those body fluids can deliver the virus into your bloodstream through microscopic breaks or rips in the delicate linings of your vagina, vulva, penis, rectum, or mouth. Rips in these areas are very common and mostly unnoticeable. HIV can also enter through open sores, like those caused by herpes or syphilis, if infected body fluids get in them. You need to know that it’s much easier to get HIV (or to give it to someone else), if you have a sexually transmitted disease (STD). For more information, see CDC's The Role Of STD Detection And Treatment In HIV Prevention.
During pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding: Babies have constant contact with their mother’s body fluids-including amniotic fluid and blood-throughout pregnancy and childbirth. After birth, infants can get HIV from drinking infected breast milk.
As a result of injection drug use: Injecting drugs puts you in contact with blood-your own and others, if you share needles and “works”. Needles or drugs that are contaminated with HIV-infected blood can deliver the virus directly into your body.
As a result of occupational exposure: Healthcare workers have the greatest risk for this type of HIV transmission. If you work in a healthcare setting, you can come into contact with infected blood or other fluids through needle sticks or cuts. A few healthcare workers have been infected when body fluids splashed into their eyes, mouth, or into an open sore or cut.
As a result of a blood transfusion with infected blood or an organ transplant from an infected donor: Screening requirements make both of these forms of HIV transmission very rare in the United States.
HOW DO YOU GET AIDS?
AIDS is the late stage of HIV infection, when a person’s immune system is severely damaged and has difficulty fighting diseases and certain cancers. Before the development of certain medications, people with HIV could progress to AIDS in just a few years. Currently, people can live much longer - even decades - with HIV before they develop AIDS. This is because of “highly active” combinations of medications that were introduced in the mid 1990s. Read more about how HIV causes AIDS.

Dear friends and colleagues,
For every organization, change is inevitable in order for it to adapt with the complexities of the times and for it to grow strong. So it holds true for Asian American Council. Our Council is now revitalized and now known as Asian American Congress. During its inception in 1984, we are known as Asian American Advisory Council as its primary role then was to be an advisory body to NY Police Department. In 2000, we adapted to the changes and became Asian American Council since our role was expanded - not only in an advisory role but more in tune with the growing political and civil issues confronting the society. Thus, we became not geographically limited but became “global” in scope as we joined alliances with other international groups and we have chapters even in Central America. As our role is gradually expanding, we decided to adapt once again and to change for the better and, as of August 2016, we are to be known henceforth as the Asian American Congress.
Although we look forward to the future, we are cognizant of our colorful past such that we cannot move forward without the structure and accomplishments we did in the past. We are continuing to be the advocate of the people especially the voice of Asian American communities. We continue to forge ties and alliances with foreign cities and foster international understanding. We believe in peaceful co-existence, amity and friendship. We believe in the rule of law, civic-mindedness, loyalty to our country and proud of our ethnic heritage. We teach people to be more politically aware, cognizant of their right to self-determination and resolve in making their opinions count. We are, after all, the amalgam of our heritage and American dream.
As we are celebrating the 32nd year anniversary of Asian American Congress (formerly Asian American Council), we look forward to doing more good for the community. We will adapt if we need to adapt to modern times but we will not forget our basic aims and principles. We will not forget that we are here to champion the cause of Asian Americans. We are Asian American Congress after all.
