• Updated Manual on NY HIV/AIDS Testing, Confidentiality & Discrimination Law Now Available

    May 14, 2012
    LAC is proud to release its updated manual "HIV/AIDS: Testing, Confidentiality & Discrimination. What You Need to Know About New York Law," an easy-to-use, comprehensive guide to New York State's HIV testing, confidentiality, and discrimination laws.

    Thoroughly updated to reflect new state and federal laws, the manual:

    • Provides a detailed explanation of New York’s HIV testing and confidentiality law (Article 27-F of the Public Health Law), including its relationship to HIPAA’s federal health privacy rules; and
    • Reviews federal, state, and New York City anti-discrimination laws that protect people with HIV/AIDS.
    This manual is a must read for health and social service providers in New York who serve people with HIV/AIDS and a vital resource for individuals affected by the HIV epidemic. Please feel free to circulate it widely.

    Printed copies of the manual may be picked up in our office -- but please contact us to set up an appointment first -- or ordered in our online store. The manual is free, but we do charge for shipping, and if you'd like more than five copies, please contact us instead of using the store).

    Many thanks to the AIDS Institute of the New York State Department of Health for its support of this project!
