Approximately 80 percent of the 60 million people infected with HIV since the AIDS epidemic began 25 years ago were infected through sexual intercourse (UNAIDS, ). Transmission of HIV via blood-blood contact has a relatively high per-act efficiency compared to sexual transmission 1. This is mainly due to the fact that the virus is directly transmitted into the bloodstream, whereas during sexual intercourse the virus in general needs to pass the mucosal barrier of the genital tract.   Anal sex is the highest-risk sexual activity for HIV transmission.

In recent years, multiple studies have demonstrated the efficacy of diverse biomedical interventions to prevent the sexual acquisition of HIV infection in specific : Jose G. Castro, Maria L. Alcaide. Oral injury. Oral penetration is on the opposite end of the HIV transmission risk spectrum. About 25% of sexual assaults involved oral penetration (Riggs, Houry, Long, Markovchick & Feldhaus, ).Transmission after ingesting infected fluids can be increased by abrasions and other open sores (either present or induced during assault) (Mbopi-Keou, Belec, Teo, Scully & Porter, ).

Biological Plausibility of AHI role in Transmission. Persons with AHI often exhibit markedly elevated viral loads, often exceeding 1 million copies/milliliter [1–8].Virus can be detected within the internal iliac lymph nodes within two days of infection, with systemic viral dissemination occurring shortly thereafter [].The rapid consumption of target cells by HIV during AHI allows Cited by: Sexual transmission is a leading cause of HBV infection among adults in areas of low HBV prevalence, including the United States and Europe, , and it is a contributing cause of HBV transmission in moderately endemic (e.g., India, Bulgaria) , and highly endemic (e.g., China) , countries. The most common risk factors for sexual.   Covers all aspects (historical, epidemiological, diagnostic, clinical, preventative, public health and medico-legal) of STIs in complete detail with a special emphasis on STIs in special groups—migrants, homosexuals, and sexually abused.
