UK CHANGES TESTING POLICY
The University of Kentucky Health Services has changed its policies on HIV testing. Previously testing was
“confidential” meaning that the test results were recorded in a person’s health files. These files are meant to
only be accessible to certain health professionals. This type of testing is considered by many HIV/AIDS groups
to be flawed in that test results sometimes are leaked. In September UK decided to begin “anonymous” testing
whereas a person’s identity is unknown and therefore can not be filed.
