This secure registry allows Virginia residents to store their Advanced Health Care Directive, Health Care Power of Attorney, Declaration of Anatomical Gift, and other documents so that medical providers, emergency responders, family members, and anyone else they grant access will honor their wishes.

In 2008, Equality Virginia helped pass legislation setting up this state-wide making it easier for doctors to know who is authorized to make medical decisions for loved ones in a time of need.
