Even if you look and feel healthy, you could still be infected.
People infected with HIV carry the virus in their body fluids, including blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and breast milk.
The virus can spread only if these HIV-infected fluids enter the bloodstream of another person.
Approximately 1.1 million Americans are living with HIV/AIDS, and more than 50,000 become infected with HIV every year.
Twenty-five percent of them are between the ages of 13 and 24.
That means at least one teenager or young adult in this country is infected with HIV every hour of every day.
But many young people still do not think they are personally at risk for HIV.
