HIV Data Protection

After reprimanding an NHS body, the UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has called for "serious improvements" to be made to how organisations protect HIV patient information.

It also used the chance to remind organisations that handle this kind of very sensitive information that they need to be extra careful.

Stephen Bonner, who is the deputy commissioner for regulatory supervision at the ICO, said that HIV service providers must protect data to the highest standards.

"There's just too much at stake. Research shows that people with HIV have faced stigma or discrimination because of their condition. This means that organisations that handle this kind of information should be very careful with their personal information," he said.
