Click HERE to find out more about the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act and how it affects those with or at-risk for HD

With the help of incredible efforts by HD advocates, HDSA was successful in advancing the passage of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) of 2008.


GINA offers strong protections against discrimination by health insurance companies and employers, but we need to expand protections to ensure that those who undergo genetic testing do not have to fear repercussions.
