Can HIV/AIDS be transmitted by food? According to the World Health Organization (WHO), HIV cannot be transmitted by water or food. In fact, HIV does not live long outside the human body. Even if the food contained small amounts of HIV-infected blood or semen, exposure to the air, heat from cooking, and stomach acid would destroy the virus.

It is therefore important that the food industry, the consuming public and the media all understand that transmission of HIV/AIDS by food and beverages is not a risk. However, persons with HIV/AIDS are more likely than others to acquire one of those diarrhoeal diseases that can be transmitted by food, and other infections or lesions.

HIV can’t be passed on through sharing food, drinks or cooking utensils, even if the person preparing your food is living with HIV. Toilet seats, tables, door handles, cutlery, sharing towels. You can’t get HIV from any of these as it can only be transmitted through specific bodily fluids. Water. HIV can’t survive in water, so you can’t get HIV from swimming pools, baths, shower areas, washing clothes or from drinking water. Insects

Paying attention to food and water safety is important when you have HIV, because your immune system is already weakened and working hard to fight off infections. If food is not handled or prepared in a safe way, germs from the food can be passed on to you. These germs can make you sick.

While HIV can spread via vaginal fluids, the virus tends to exist in smaller concentrations than it does in blood and semen.

One possibility is that even when HIV is undetectable in blood, it may still be transmitted in breast milk through cell-associated virus. The volume of breast milk consumed during the breastfeeding period and the amount of potentially infected cells in breast milk mean that the risk differs from sexual transmission and may be much higher, despite undetectable viral load in blood.

No, you can’t get herpes from sharing drinks and meals. Herpes is spread by touching, kissing, and sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, and oral sex. It can be passed from one partner to another and from one part of the body to another. Brief skin-to-skin contact is all that’s needed to pass the virus.
