New Entity To Run HIV Tests for Adult Film Industry
The Free Speech Coalition, an adult entertainment industry trade group, has announced that it will provide testing for HIV and sexually transmitted infections for adult film performers. The coalition will continue some of the work that had been conducted by the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation, which shuttered earlier this month because of financial reasons. Under the coalition's program -- called the Adult Production Health & Safety Services, or APHSS -- performers can select services from a network of clinics or health care providers. AÂ database will collect individuals' information, and adult entertainment filmmakers will be able to review that data.
