Privacy and Disclosure For Youth Living With HIV or Hep C: Questions & Answers

This toolkit was created by the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network.

HERE'S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS TOOLKIT:
This guide is for youth between the ages of 15 and 29 and focuses on some of the factors at play when young people living with HIV or hepatitis C (Hep C) are thinking about telling others about their HIV or Hep C status.

This guide provides information about different laws that may apply to young people living with HIV or Hep C. This guide does not provide legal advice about your particular situation. If you want or need legal advice, you should talk to a lawyer. If you are living with HIV and in Ontario, you can contact the HIV & AIDS Legal Clinic Ontario (HALCO). There is information at the end of this guide about where to get legal help.

The information in this guide is based on an understanding of the laws around HIV and Hep C in Canada at the time of publication. One of the things you will notice in this guide is that each case is different. People living with HIV or Hep C will almost always benefit from getting more information about their individual circumstances. The resources at the end of this guide can help.
