Confidentiality, Outreach/Provider Liaison
All HIV and health related information provided to the programs is kept strictly confidential.
The programs use the AIDS Institute's network of programs and providers, and those of other New York State agencies as a comprehensive referral system for promotional materials. In cooperation with state, federal and local correction authorities, program applications and information are provided to HIV-positive inmates nearing release from correctional facilities. Other outreach efforts have included distribution of brochures and posters through the referral networks of health and human service providers; transit poster campaigns; paid radio and television PSA advertisement; paid newspaper ads; mailings of promotional materials to physicians, pharmacies, hospitals, diagnostic and treatment centers, laboratory vendors, home care agencies and other HIV service providers.
Presentations on the programs, staff training and provider liaison services are available from program staff.
