The virus can be transmitted through contact with infected blood, semen or vaginal fluids. However the tide is about to change, There is an ongoing research within Uganda with regards to HIV/AIDS treatment.

Uganda is in the final stages of introducing a new drug that will prevent transmission of HIV/AIDS.
