Inclusive Language—Talking about People with Disabilities and Diseases, How do you write this sentence properly?

Her brother has a friend that is living with Aids.



A friend of her brother has AIDs.

You can also use:

Her brother has a friend who is living with AIDS.

The brother is a person; therefore use "who" rather than "that."

AIDS stands for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. All letters of this acronym need to be capitalized.

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.

Sorry, the friend is the person, but you still need to use "who."
