Confidential HIV Testing
Appointments through Medical Services are confidential, but not anonymous. This means that your name will appear on the lab requisition, and the lab results are filed in your medical records. Medical Services takes special precautions to safeguard the confidentiality of these results. However, the law enacted in April, 2006 mandates that we report individuals with positive test results for chlamydia, hepatitis B, gonorrhea, syphilis, HIV and hepatitis C must be reported, by law, to the County Department of Public Health. If you need documentation of your results, this is the type of testing you need.
Anonymous HIV Testing
If you do not need documentation of your test results, you might consider anonymous screening conducted by HIV*PACT at Wellness and Health Promotion Services. When scheduling your appointments, please use an anonymous name. Positive test results must be reported, by law, to the County Department of Public Health.
See the HIV Overview for how HIV is tramsmitted and how you can avoid infection.
