  • Description:
    Certain words and language used in the context of HIV and AIDS may have a negative meaning for those who are at high risk for getting HIV or those who are living with HIV. Using such words or language may result in real or perceived stigma, discrimination, fear, and anxiety, which may prevent some people from getting tested or treated for HIV. We can do our part by being thoughtful when choosing our words and choosing to use supportive—rather than stigmatizing— language when talking openly about HIV.

    Get the facts. Get tested. Get involved.
