mother to baby (before or during birth, or through breast milk) (AIDS.gov) Fast Facts
More than one million people are living with HIV in the U.S.

One in five living with HIV is unaware of their infection.

MSM, particularly young, black MSM, are the most severely affected by HIV.

By race, African Americans face the most severe HIV burden. The major development related to the treatment of HIV is Antiretroviral Therapy. This treatment has been developed through years. Based on the HIV facts, this is the perfect way to delay the growth of the virus in the body. HIV gives bad effect for the infected people. Their body will be weak and fragile. These people are so powerless. They are more susceptible to be infected with other diseases like cancer or pneumonia. Interpersonal Factors Abusive Family Negligence "Friends"
social support Significant Other Treatment:
