State HIV Testing Laws

State HIV Testing Laws

Our compendium summarizes legal guidelines for HIV testing. These laws and policies can vary from state to state. Use this overview to find the information for your practice.

The limitations of this resource
Our Compendium of State HIV Testing Laws summarizes and details key laws and policies relevant to HIV testing by state.  It is not within the scope of the project to provide continuous legal validation of all content.

We update the compendium periodically, but it is beyond the scope of the project to perform updates and verification of all laws for each state concurrent with all changes. Note that because of funding limitations, only one state (New York) has an updated and verified profile. Some states’ profiles have had revisions (see “Dates of Revision”) but have not been thoroughly verified. We encourage readers to send updates (with citations when possible) and comments to Sarah Neff at neffs@nccc.ucsf.edu.
