HIV Testing Pocketbook: A Guide to Your Rights

This pocketbook covers some of the topics that you need to know to understand your rights in regards to HIV testing in a new environment where the push is for “routine testing”.

It covers topics like informed consent, “non-nominal” (no name) testing, how to safeguard your medical privacy and limit who can view your medical information, and information about the criminal law and non-disclosure of HIV status to sexual partners.

This guide is designed for both patients and service providers and sets out what you need to know about your rights and making the right choice for you.
