HIV fears

HIV fears amidst the gloom cast by the knowledge that there is very little hope of survival for the increasing number of people with hiv/aids, there is some good news. At least in respect to transmitting the virus to their spouses. A recently-published study claims that hiv -infected people are less likely to pass the virus on to an opposite sex partner if they have low levels of the virus in their blood. In other words, viral load is the factor as also critical predictor of hiv transmission between men and women, regardless of which gender transmits the virus.

This study was carried out in heterosexual couples in Uganda
