Do HIV/AIDS patients have to inform their partners?

Does anyone know of a credible source that states whether or not people diagnosed with HIV/AIDS have to inform all of their previous sexual partners of their diagnosis?

    Yes its a law to tell anyone you may come into contact with like dentist, doctor, partner please inform them unless you want to go to jail because they can sue you

    I respectfully disagree with the first answerer. I live in the state of Louisiana and in this state it is a felony to have HIV and to not inform your sexual partner or your doctors and or your dentist. If you infect another person with them not knowing the truth they have the right to prosecute and you will go to prison. It is a law in this state and it should be a law in all states. It is wrong to give it to others.
