Should I disclose to other health care providers?

Posted in Advocacy and Medical Care & Treatment on

You do not need to disclose your HIV status to other health care services, like naturopaths, chiropractors or masseurs. However, if your HIV status is relevant to the treatment you are obtaining, then disclosing your status may assist you in obtaining the best outcomes. You should discuss any complementary therapies with your HIV specialist doctor to ensure that they will be suitable for you and not interact badly with your HIV medication.
