Description

Quarterly report of HIV/AIDS surveillance and statistics in Papua New Guinea.

Abstract

" In Papua New Guinea, surveillance of HIV/AIDS consists of case reports of HIV/AIDS infection sent to the National AIDS Council Secretariat (NACS). Information collected on cases relies upon the National Reference Laboratory at Central Public Health Laboratory (CPHL) to notify confirmed cases of HIV infection to the Statistical Officer NACS. CPHL sends medical notification forms with the confirmed results to the medical officer who requested the test, who in turn is expected to return the completed form to the Statistical Officer, NACS. However, medical notification of HIV/AIDS cases which previously reported not being forwarded to the statistical officer are gradually coming. The medical notification contains more detailed information of the case such as demographic, epidemiological and clinical status of the case, but since this system is yet to improve analysis of data published is obtained from the laboratory notification only."
