  • Has your partner ever shared needles for any reason?
  • Are you a man who has had sex with a man?
  • Have you had sex – anal or vaginal – with a partner who has HIV?
  • Have you ever exchanged sex for drugs or money?

If you have answered YES to any of the above questions you may be at risk for HIV.
