Transmission of HIV and AIDS

The primary means of HIV transmission are believed to be sexual contact (particularly among gay men in Western countries), dirty needles and through blood products (whole blood tranfusions or blood clotting factors for hemophiliacs). If two people share a non–infectious health risk factor, does the acquisition of HIV antibodies or AIDS–defining diseases prove transmission? Do people with these risk factors get ill even when they are not HIV–positive?

For further information see Dr. Christian Fiala’s “Epidemiological Evidence Against Heterosexual Transmission of HIV”.
