So why couldn't malaria aid the spread? Mosquitos bite a man with HIV, they have malaria and HIV blood in their stomachs. Then they go to some other dude and do the same. While the mosquito bites the man, the HIV is transferred. Its exactly how Lyme and malaria diseases work. The question is, can HIV virus live in the stomach of a mosquito like the other two can?

I don't know whether it is true or not.because as of now I knew that the mosquitoes doesn't have the power or rather to be more specific they doesn't have the mechanism to carry the HIV virus on then so that when they bite anyone esle they can inject that virus to them.. But never know anything is possible with new breeds of mosquitoes evolving daily.
