Advice and guidance for editors and journalists reporting on HIV in Ireland.

Media coverage can play an important role in educating the public and in reducing fear of, and stigma surrounding, HIV, yet coverage of this important health issue can be inconsistent, unpredictable, inaccurate, and sometimes sensationalist.

Published by HIV Ireland on Zero Discrimination Day 2021, the guidelines include best practice tips for reporting on HIV together with up-to-date information on use of language, terminology, case studies and key facts about HIV to better inform sensitive and accurate reporting in the media.
