This video defines Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and its effect on the body’s immune system. It also dispels common myths regarding HIV, such as “you can tell by looking at someone whether they have HIV,” “you can get HIV through casual contact with someone who has HIV,” and “birth control can prevent HIV.” The video also goes over the ways HIV is transmitted through bodily fluids (sex, sharing needles, being breastfed by someone with HIV) and states that pregnant women with HIV need proper treatment to ensure their baby is not born with HIV. The video also mentions products that can prevent someone from getting HIV, such as condoms and PrEP medication. The video closes by emphasizing the importance of getting tested regularly for HIV and other STDs. Classroom favorite.
