HIV Transmission

“This is the best way I can imagine to introduce such a sensitive/vital issue in a non-embarrassing way and still get the message across: the HIV virus is transmitted by sharing body fluids, there are specific high risk behaviors, and what you choose to do is the greatest determining factor in whether or not you contract the disease. There is a concern that has been expressed by some teachers that this subject needs to be dealt with in a way that all students can feel comfortable. In some schools there may be HIV positive students and many students have personal experience with friends and relatives who are HIV positive.”
