Confidential or anonymous - HIV testing, part 5

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This one-page handout with accompanying video and audio recording educates people about the difference between confidential and anonymous HIV testing. It explains that confidential HIV test results contain name and other identifying information, and are protected by state and federal privacy laws. It clarifies that local and state health departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have access to positive HIV test results. The document also discusses anonymous HIV testing, which does not associate test results with a person's identifiable information.
