Individuals who wish to get tested may choose to do so anonymously or confidentially. With anonymous testing, a person does not provide his or her name, but instead receives an identifying number. Anonymous testing is available through many local health departments and community-based sites throughout the state.

Under the Governor's leadership, New York has achieved a dramatic 78 percent decline in the number of newborns statewide who are infected with HIV. The results are derived from a recent State Health Department study of infants born between 1997 and 2002. In addition, New Y
