These guidelines to UNAIDS’ preferred terminology have been developed for use by staff

members, colleagues in the Programme’s 10 Cosponsoring organisations, and other partners

working in the global response to HIV.

Language shapes beliefs and may influence behaviours. Considered use of appropriate language

has the power to strengthen the global response to the epidemic. UNAIDS is pleased to make

these guidelines to preferred terminology freely available. It is a living, evolving document that is

reviewed on a regular basis.
