Confidentiality of AIDS Testing

August 23, 1987

On Sunday, Aug. 16, an article was run in your paper regarding the company I work for, The Assurance Society 1. The article was on the front page of the Orange County Section. To the left of the article was a picture of one of the cards we give as an option to testing negative for the AIDS virus. The card held my picture and name stating the date I tested negative. Nowhere in the article did it state that I am employed by the company, leaving the public to believe that, while we profess confidentiality, we took the liberty of putting a client's name and face in the L.A. Times.

It is important to all of us at the Assurance Society that our clients know we take confidentiality seriously.
