In brief: Virus

Hiv is a virus.
It is contagious by means of intimate human contact with someone who has the virus. The contact has to include an exchange of bodily fluid - especially blood & semen - but saliva can carry the virus and perhaps in very unusual rare cases sweat. Avoiding contact other persons' fluids is the best protection.
