HALCO and Community Legal Education Ontario (CLEO) have released a new guide on HIV testing and reporting to Public Health in Ontario.
The new guide includes information about the differences between nominal and anonymous HIV testing, as well as details about what gets reported to Public Health authorities when people test positive for HIV. In particular, the guide provides updated information about reducing the possibility of a person’s name being reported to Public Health authorities after testing positive anonymously and accessing HIV-related medical care. The guide also includes some information about HIV self-testing kits.
The guide can be found and print copies can be ordered here. A French language translation will be available shortly.
