HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices (PDF version)
Maintaining client confidentiality is a core value of the Alliance for Positive Health. People living with HIV/AIDS can often face discrimination and stigma and the agency is responsible for ensuring clients' information is not disclosed without written permission. The Alliance for Positive Health is mandated under federal and state law to keep all client information confidential. It is critical that staff understand the importance of client confidentiality and are equipped with the information and training necessary to adhere to confidentiality policies and procedures. Breaches of confidentiality are serious, they erode our clients' trust in us, compromise our professionalism as an agency, and expose us to potential legal action.
