|Are HIV+ people registered?
Mar 16, 2001
I have a friend who is HIV+ and I have been unable to find him. I heard that all HIV+ people have to be registered. Is this true? If so,where can i find the list.

Although we report new cases of HIV infection, in NO way is there a register of HIV positive patients. This would violate confidentiality laws. You can search thebody.com for more info on this subject.
