HIV disclosure Laws In Alabama
Jul 27, 2010

Response from Dr. Frascino
The Alabama law states that "any person afflicted with a sexually transmitted disease who shall knowingly transmit, or assume the risk of transmitting, or do any act which will probably or likely transmit such disease to another person shall be guilty of a Class C misdemeanor."
