dc.description.abstract The intention of the study was to find the preferred medium of communication and the preferred language for the dissemination of Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) information among the unskilled employees of Kumba Iron Ore mining company, with an assumption that disseminating of appropriate information can influence positive behaviour change with respect to the HIV/AIDS disease. In this study company and clinic workshops came up as the most preferred media for receiving HIV/AIDS information and English came up as the most preferred language for all the media types except radio where Tswana-Sotho came up as the most preferred language. It also came up clearly in the findings that most women do not like to discuss HIV/AIDS issues with friends or relatives en
