On Monday, April 22, the Biden Administration released a long-awaited final rule to strengthen privacy protections for reproductive health care information. According to the new rule, HIPAA will now protect medical records for out-of-state abortions from law enforcement. The law will take effect in 30 days.

Join experts from CHLP, the Harvard Law School Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation, Network for Public Health Law, and Pregnancy Justice for a conversation that will share a digestible overview of the final rule, initial reflections on strengths and limitations, and an understanding of on-the-ground implications.
