Glossary of HIV/AIDS Terms

Rod Martel

This glossary is provided for a better understanding of HIV/AIDS terminology in current usage. Medical and scientific terminology are based on the Surgeon General's Report of AIDS, publications of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the former Global AIDS Programme of the World Health Organization (now part of U.N.AIDS), AIDS Treatment Data Network, and Harvard's Global Policy on AIDS Coalition. The research literature was also consulted through the internet.
