SA Health, January 2017
The SA Health report ‘Surveillance of sexually transmitted infections and blood-borne viruses in South Australia, 2015’ is now available for downloading from the SA Health website.
The Communicable Disease Control Branch (CDCB) conducts surveillance for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and blood borne viruses (BBVs) in South Australia under the legislative framework of the South Australian Public Health Act, 2011. The surveillance system in South Australia utilises a dual notification strategy where the laboratory and the diagnosing medical practitioner provide information on each episode of infection. A person could be notified more than once during the reporting period and with the same or more than one type of infection. Information collected as part of the notifiable diseases surveillance system is entered into a database at the time of notification and analysed.
