Correction: In the podcast, Danny and Nicole incorrectly refer to AIDS as a virus, which it isn’t. HIV refers to ‘human immunodeficiency virus’, whilst AIDS is a clinical syndrome. We apologise for using an incorrect term, and hope it doesn’t cause offence, or sustain stigma. It certainly wasn’t our intention, and we’ve re-educated ourselves here.
