        AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation  to  the  HTLV-1  and
          HTLV-2 viruses
 
          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:

     1    Section 1. Subdivision 1 of section 207 of the public  health  law  is
     2  amended by adding a new paragraph (p) to read as follows:
     3    (p)  The  diagnosis,  treatment  and  prevention of HTLV-1 and HTLV-2,
     4  including information and assistance on where to find community  support
     5  services,  support groups, respite, and care management. In instances in
     6  which viral typing is possible, educational materials  shall  direct  to
     7  virus  specific community support services, support groups, respite, and
     8  care management as HTLV-1 and HTLV-2 are two different retroviruses with
     9  differing epidemiologies and  disease  associations  requiring  specific
    10  recommendations for persons infected with HTLV-1 or HTLV-2. Such materi-
    11  als shall be made available to clinics that specialize in sexually tran-
    12  smitted  diseases, health care facilities, and department of corrections
    13  and community supervision  facilities.  All  information  and  materials
    14  shall be maintained and updated to reflect best practice recommendations
    15  and  shall be culturally and linguistically appropriate for the communi-
    16  ties the materials are made available to.
    17    § 2. This act shall take effect on the one hundred twentieth day after
    18  it shall have become a law.  Effective immediately, the addition, amend-
    19  ment and/or repeal of any rule or regulation necessary for the implemen-
    20  tation of this act on its effective date are authorized to be  made  and
    21  completed on or before such effective date.
 

         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD08055-01-9
