8c. Public health surveillance, confidentiality and information governance

Services delivering HIV care should actively provide data to national surveillance programmes.

People living with HIV should be informed and given choices about how their personal clinical information is shared with clinicians involved in their overall care outside HIV services.

All patient-related information, whether clinical, pseudonymised or anonymous, should be held securely in compliance with information governance standards and national legislation.
