There is power in the language we use
This is especially true when we are talking about HIV. How we talk about HIV has evolved since the end of the 20th century, and many of the terms we may have used previously are now outdated. We have created a handy language guide to give you the tools to talk about HIV and call out stigma and outdated attitudes when you see them.
People living with HIV have preferences on the language they use to describe their lived experience, so this guide may not cover every term or phrase.
We all have a part to play to #GetToZero new HIV transmissions in Scotland by 2030. You can help us get there by calling out misinformation and stigma relating to HIV. You can find out more about our Get To Zero campaign here. Download our free HIV language guide below.
