Transmission
& Prevention
7. Can I become infected with HIV through normal social contact or activities such as shaking hands, kissing, using toilet seats and swimming pools, sharing cutlery, or exposure to sneezes and coughs?

No. this is because HIV is not an air-borne, water-borne or food-borne virus.

Therefore ordinary social contact such as kissing, shaking hands, coughing and sharing cutlery does not result in the virus being passed from one person to another.
