How Does Circumcision Decrease Hiv And Aids Rate
Multiple theories: There are multiple theories surrounding why circumcision decreases hiv/aids. One theory suggests that there is a larger number of langerhans or "hiv target cells" located in the foreskin of uncircumsized men, thus increasing the risk of HIV infection.

For how long the scratch is capable of transmitting hiv I mean how long it takes to not contract hiv from infected blood?
Depends on moisture: HIV is a fragile virus. It needs moisture and warmth to survive. If the scratch from an HIV + person is new and has flowing blood then it is infectious.

If it is completely dry and been that way for a while, unlikely to be infectious. ...Read more

How long can hiv and hepc live outside of a body is it easy to catch hiv or hepc once outside of body?
It doesn't happen: Blood borne viruses (HIV, hepaitis B and C viruses, or others) are not acquired from contaminated environments.

Hiv virus can live in condom upto how many minutes? because I use the condom which is used by others for handjob am I get hiv?
Low risk, not zero: See my reply to your previous question. If a condom really is used previously by an HIV infected person, and not rinsed or cleaned, HIV probably will survive for at least several hours and perhap for days. Nobody has known to ever catch HIV because of such an exposure, but I cannot say there is no risk. If you remain concerned, get tested for HIV after a few weeks. ...Read more
