Weekly HIV & STI report now available on HPSC website
Since January 2013, all Departments of Public Health and the majority of laboratories in Ireland have been contributing timely case based data on notifiable sexually transmitted infections (excluding ano-genital warts and non specific urethritis) to the national Computerised Infectious Disease Reporting System, CIDR. Starting this week, a weekly HIV and STI report is available on the HPSC website providing up to date information on notifiable STIs. More detailed analysis of trends over time will be provided in periodic reports. This is a great improvement for STI surveillance, and thanks are due particularly to all those who have helped to make this happen, clinicians, laboratory scientists, microbiologists, public health professionals, and HPSC CIDR team.
Reports on STIs, up to and including 2012 are available here.
