Review of the Public Health Act 2010 (NSW)
In 2017, amendments were made to the Public Health Act 2010 (NSW) to introduce contact order public health orders and to remove the requirement on a person with a sexually transmitted infection (STI) from notifying their sexual partners of their STI status. A statutory review of these amendments is required to determine whether the policy objectives of the amendments remain valid and whether the terms of the amendments remain appropriate for securing those objectives.
A discussion paper
has been prepared to canvass issues associated with the review and consult with stakeholders.
Submissions on the issues raised in the discussion paper will be accepted until 11 December 2020.
