One of the ways in which the HI virus is passed from one person to another is through blood. Children need to know:
• Not to touch someone else’s blood, scabs, sores, cuts etc.
• Always to wear rubber or plastic gloves if they have to treat someone who is bleeding.
• To put anything with blood on it in a plastic bag, tie up and throw it away somewhere safe.
• If they do inadvertently get blood on their hands, to rinse them immediately with water and bleach (detergent).
