As part of the BC-CfE’s mandate to evaluate the outcomes of STOP HIV/AIDS® programming in BC, we have developed quarterly HIV/AIDS monitoring reports. These reports provide up-to-date data on a variety of key HIV-related surveillance and treatment indicators. Selection of these indicators was achieved through a collaborative process with various Health Authority (HA) representatives. There are six reports in total, one for each HA and one for the province of BC as a whole. In addition, there is a technical report which explains how each HIV indicator is calculated. Data used in these reports come from the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), MSP billings, hospitalization data from the Discharge Abstract Database, the Sunquest Laboratory database at the Provincial Public Health Microbiology and Reference Laboratory, Providence Health Care laboratory and the BC-CfE Drug Treatment Program (DTP) Database.
These reports are produced for the benefit of individual HAs. As such, we are enthusiastic about your involvement and cooperation regarding the development of these monitoring reports.
