AIDS and HIV can't be spread by talking to someone who has it or by sharing a drink. It can be spread by sexual contact with an infected person. It can also be spread by using the same needle as an infected person or touching an infected person's open sore to your own. HIV can be spread through child birth. That is why many children are born with HIV, most likely their mother had it also. I think it would be horrible to be a mother and find out that your baby has HIV and you passed it to them through birth.
