Answer

Hi,

HIV nondisclosure laws vary from state to state. If possible, I would suggest you accompany your step-daughter to her next appointment with her HIV specialist and openly discuss the situation. He will know how to proceed.

Your step-daughter may benefit from psychotherapy (counseling).
