Risk Behavior

photo of two people kissingIn the United States, HIV is spread mainly through anal or vaginal sex or by sharing drug-use equipment with an infected person. Substance use can contribute to these risks indirectly because alcohol and other drugs can lower people’s inhibitions and make them less likely to use condoms. This section provides information on the various risk behaviors and what you can do to lower your risk.
