Comments Second International Consultation on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights, Geneva, 23-25 September 1996. Third International Consultation on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights, Geneva, 25-26 July 2002. Organized jointly by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS. This version of the International Guidelines on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights consolidates the Guidelines fi rst published in 1998 and revised Guideline 6 first published in 2002. Because of the consolidation, paragraph numbering has changed, and references to the Guidelines should include reference to the consolidated version to avoid confusion as to paragraph numbering. Other minor editorial changes have been made with regard to the introduction, summary and use of some terms. For example, "HIV/AIDS" is usually shortened to "HIV" and is intended to include both conditions, and "PLWHA" has been changed to "PLHIV". Other than that, the content of the Guidelines has not been revised or altered.
