619 in the women's module uses the term 'prostitute'. The term is also used in the men's module. This term is stigmatizing and out of date. Suggest changing it to sex worker to better align with international norms and UNAIDS recommended terminology: http://www.unaids.org/en/media/unaids/contentassets/document s/unaidspublication/2011/JC2118_terminology-guidelines_en.pd f
