Daily Fact about HIV:
Knowledge is massive power in the fight against HIV infection and transmission. According to the CDC website, the vast majority of persons who know that they are infected with HIV do not transmit the virus to others. The statistics reveal that at least 95% of those living with HIV infection did not transmit HIV to others in 2006. One of the reasons for the decline in HIV transmission: improved HIV testing.
