Adult Industry Medical Healthcare (AIM) has issued this statement concerning the article this morning in the LA Times (please refer to our earlier blog post). In an effort to keep industry members and concerned parties informed on the latest events, we are posting AIM’s statement here:

“Despite Patient Zeta’s self-identification and sharing of information regarding HIV status and test results and the HIV status of a person identified as a girlfriend, AIM is bound by California and Federal statutes to protect the medical privacy of patients and AIM remains committed to providing screening and testing services to performers as well as our civilian population while maintaining medical privacy.

AIM’s statements made to the media and every report to the California Department of Public Health were based upon the information provided by Patient Zeta to AIM.  As part of AIM’s standard protocols, Patient Zeta was offered counseling, documentation of test results, and information and direction regarding resources and treatment.  Any statements made by Patient Zeta which portray AIM as not providing appropriate and proper services are not truthful and are self-serving.

Aids Healthcare Foundation, has a history of aggressive and hostile actions against AIM, and the most distressing aspect of this situation is that Patient Zeta is simply being manipulated for AHF’s own purposes and in furtherance of their agenda.”
