We have the science to stop the spread of HIV. We need to work to bring people to the science. We persist in using terms and language and leaning on old knowledge that accidentally perpetuate misinformation, stigma, and shame. As providers we need to hit the reset button on our knowledge of and approach to addressing HIV with all our clients. We should approach HIV (like substance abuse and mental health) from a non-stigmatizing, non-judgmental, non-shame-based perspective.



  1. Define current  basic terminology and concepts related to HIV prevention and treatment.
  2. Explain the impact of stigma and social determinants of health on HIV prevention and treatment.
  3. Describe ways of working with clients from a sex-positive and harm reduction approach.
  4. Outline ethical considerations, in light of more effective treatment and prevention, when working with clients.
