HIV/AIDS

I am going to read two statements about HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. After I read each one, please tell me whether you think it is true or false, or if you do not know. A pregnant woman with HIV can get treatment to help reduce the chances that she wil l pass the virus on to her baby.*
