HIV is the virus that causes AIDS.
AIDS is a result of HIV infection.
HIV can be prevented by taking precautions and through education.
HIV and some other STIs are transmitted by:

2. Sharing needles and syringes.
Precautions to reduce infection risks include the use of a latex or polyurethane condom when having sex and by using a new needle and syringe if injecting prescribed or recreational drugs.
