To the Editor: Dr Nakashima and colleagues1 discuss important issues regarding the impact of name-based HIV reporting on counseling and testing behavior. As the national debate regarding name-based HIV reporting vs the use of a nonname identifier continues, it is important to present data on the impact of name-based HIV reporting on additional aspects of HIV testing behavior. We provide information on name-based HIV reporting and people leaving a geographic area for counseling and testing in nearby jurisdictions without name-based reporting.
