This pamphlet discusses HIV testing for newborn infants. It explains that the state of New York requires all babies to be tested. The pamphlet also explains when the mother will receive the results of the test, how a baby can get HIV, the meaning of a positive test for a baby, what happens for a mother who has HIV, and for a baby who has HIV. The pamphlet emphasizes that the results of the baby’s HIV test are confidential and that doctors can only share that information with others who are providing health care. A positive result is also confidentially reported to the state health department.
