Today I want to show you how everyone can get infected by HIV.
HIV can affect anyone because the virus doesn’t discriminate. You can be American, British, Slovakian, Swedish, South African or French, you can also be HIV positive. HIV doesn’t care about your nationality. Whether you are an actor, musician, fashion designer, philosopher, politician, veteran or housewife, you can get infected by HIV. HIV doesn’t care who you are or what you do in life. Even you are conservative, a virgin, transgendered or a child, you can die because of complications of AIDS. HIV doesn’t discriminate. As being HIV+ isn’t written on your face, it’s almost impossible to know who has been infected, so protection is always needed. If you don’t want to become part of the list below, learn how to protect yourself immediately.
