HIV transmission can occur when fluids containing HIV from an infected person enter the body of an uninfected person. These fluids include:
Pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum)
HIV can enter the body through:
Lining of the anus or rectum
Lining of the vagina and/or cervix
Opening to the penis
Mouth that has sores or bleeding gums
Cuts and sores
Healthy skin is an excellent barrier against HIV and other viruses and bacteria. HIV cannot enter the body through unbroken skin.
These are the most common ways that HIV is transmitted from one person to another:
Having sex (anal, vaginal, or oral) with someone who is HIV-positive
Sharing needles or injection equipment ("works") with a user who is HIV-positive
From HIV-positive women to their babies—before or during birth, or through breastfeeding after birth
Some healthcare workers have been infected after being stuck with needles contaminated with HIV-infected blood—or, less frequently, by having infected blood splashed into their eyes, nose, mouth, or into an open cut or sore.
HIV also can be transmitted through transfusion of infected blood or blood clotting factors. However, since 1985, all donated blood in the United States has been tested for HIV. The risk of infection through transfusion of blood or blood products is extremely low—but if you have risk factors for HIV, you should avoid donating blood. It is important to remember that you should not donate blood for the purpose of getting tested for HIV.
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.
