New California law streamlines HIV testing
SACRAMENTO (KABC) -- Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill Saturday that improves HIV testing efforts across the state.
Assembly Bill 446 streamlines the consent process for HIV testing in non-clinical settings, such as on mobile testing vans.
It also allows people to get their test results through a secure site on the Internet.
Advocates say the change will help to reach populations that are most at risk so they can begin treatment.
The bill was authored by state Assemblymember Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles).
