Your Voice

A person’s HIV status is private. It is your right to choose whether to tell someone (or ‘disclose’) that you have HIV. However, there are some situations where you are legally required to share your status. This guide explains what those situations are so that you can have a greater understanding of what to expect and your rights and responsibilities

This guide also contains some practical hints and tips to support you if you do want to tell others (or not) that you have HIV. We have included real-life examples throughout this guide, to show the diversity of people’s experiences, along with advice from people who have themselves disclosed.
