• Overview: HIV+ clients often find that the privacy of their status is regularly overlooked by healthcare workers, social workers, and others who inadvertently disclose their HIV/AIDS status. This disclosure is often emotionally devastating and financially disastrous. Fortunately, California courts have long recognized the right to privacy for those living with HIV/AIDS. This training will discuss the common law and statutory law protections that safeguard confidentiality. It will also analyze various violations of this right and the remedies for these violations.
