Get Yourself Tested

HIV does not discriminate, have you been tested?

In the United States, HIV is spread mainly through anal or vaginal sex or by sharing drug-use equipment with an infected person.  HIV is found in specific human body fluids, such as, blood semen, pre-seminal fluid, breast milk, vaginal fluids and anal mucous.  If any of those fluids enter your body, you can become infected with HIV.  The Genesee County Health Department works together with the New York State Department of Health advocating to reduce the spread of HIV in our community. 

Reduce your risk... 
    1. Don't have sex
    2. Be monogamous
    3. Get Tested and know your partner's status
    4. Use condoms consistently and correctly
    5. Do not share syringes or needles
