Revision to Wisconsin HIV Statutes Related to Act
On April 21, 2010, 2009 Wisconsin Act 209 was signed into law. Act 209 eliminated the requirement for written informed consent for HIV testing by replacing it with a verbal consent process. This change will reduce the time and paperwork formerly associated with HIV testing and will encourage health care providers to routinely test in a variety of medical settings. Act 209 also simplifies legislative language and revises laws on disclosure of test results, discrimination, significant exposure, and HIV case reporting.

The following resources include a summary of recent statutory changes, related guidance for clinicians, and sample HIV testing facts sheets that address new statutory provisions on HIV testing and consent.
