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.
