What is HIV?

HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that causes AIDS.  This virus is passed from one person to another through blood-to-blood and sexual contact.  In addition, infected pregnant women can pass HIV to their baby during pregnancy or delivery, as well as through breast-feeding.  People with HIV have what is called HIV infection.  Most of these people will develop AIDS as a result of their HIV infection.

What is AIDS?

AIDS stands for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.  An HIV-infected person receives a diagnosis of AIDS after developing one of the CDC-defined AIDS indicator illnesses.  An HIV-positive person who has not had any serious illnesses also can receive an AIDS diagnosis on the basis of certain blood tests.

Condom Effectiveness and Reliability

When used consistently and correctly, latex condoms are very effective in preventing a variety of STIs, including HIV infection.  Most cases of condom failure probably result from incorrect or inconsistent use.

The Huron County Health Department does not offer HIV testing.  If you are seeking a HIV test please contact one of the following agencies:
