The answer appears to be clear:

"The overall rate of HIV infections in children and adults fell significantly during the last decade, hitting a historic low in adolescents last year, according to a new report released Monday.

"About 260,000 children were affected by the AIDS-causing virus in 2012, a 52% drop since 2001, the UNAIDS report found. In addition, the combined rate in children and adults fell to 2.3 million new infections, a 33% reduction during the same time period.

"We are beginning to see true impact on the scaling of interventions over the last decade," Mitchell Warren, executive director of the AIDS Vaccine Advocacy Coalition, told MSNBC. "Frankly it's essential news because over that decade we have seen an explosion in funding and investing."

"A decade ago the world invested less than a billion dollars toward HIV prevention, but now about $16 billion is being spent.
The report cited a worldwide expansion of access to preventative treatments as a reason for the decline."

My suggestion to you, ake, is to be faithful to your significant other and be sure that your SO is also faithful. Of course, both of you should be tested first.
