Girl, Mukole PS, Kasese
 Hullo Girl from Mukole PS, it is not true. You can’t get HIV by touching, beingnear a person with HIV, sharing plates,cups, or clothes. You can get HIV byhaving sex and sharing sharp objects likeneedles and razor blades with an infectedperson. A mother with HIV can transmitthe virus to her child during pregnancy,birth and breast feeding.
