HIV & Hepatitis B or C


These illnesses are transmitted via blood (products) or sexual intercourse.

Carry a sterilised pack of syringes, needles and a drip set with you. Avoid sharing needles (tattooing, acupuncture and piercing!). Avoid unprotected sex with a new partner, always use condoms and contact your health professional soon after contacts with high risk of infection for antiretroviral treatment.

There are no specific signs of an early HIV or Hepatitis B or C infection. Signs might occur as a slight viral infection with a sore throat, joint pains or abdominal disorder.

There is no cure for AIDS nor for Hepatitis B or C. Complex treatment is available under strict medical supervision. Prevention is the most important step to take!
