Minor Consent and Confidentiality Laws for PrEP and HIV Treatment
The following document examines various states' minor consent and confidentiality laws. A minor is a person who does not have the legal rights and responsibilities of an adult. Minors’ ability to access PrEP independently, i.e., without parental or guardian consent, varies throughout the United States. States allowing minors to autonomously consent to PrEP does not mean that access to the health care service will remain confidential.
