It is essential to ensure the maximum degree of privacy and confidentiality when medical information is legitimately required for health protection and promotion or other purposes. This applies in all situations and circumstances including hospitals, health clinics, insurance company records, employee's files, etc.

In employment settings, all health assessment information, including HIV testing results, should remain exclusively with the examining physician and away from an employee's personnel file in order to protect the confidentiality of the information.
