DOUBLE TAP TO ZOOM WITH PHONE OR TABLET Diseases HIV and AIDS The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). HIV is spread by blood and body fluids from an infected individual. Teach children about diseases, and specifically these facts about HIV and AIDS: • Blood can contain germs that make you sick. Never touch anyone else’s blood. • You cannot get HIV/AIDS from hugging or touching someone’s hand. • You cannot get HIV/AIDS from playing tag, hide-and- seek, or coloring pictures with someone.
