Any out-of-jurisdiction and/or out-of-state case needs to be reported to the Imperial County Public Health Department - HIV Surveillance Program. Please complete a Confidential Case Report (CCR) and note any known previous places of residency in the comments section.
The HIV Surveillance Program must be notified of any deaths of HIV or AIDS cases. Please complete a CCR and update the record with information of the date and jurisdiction of when and where the death occured and submit to the HIV Surveillance Coordinator.
As of January 2009 the California Department of Public Health has implemented a new reporting component in order to estimate incidence of HIV infection in California. All newly diagnosed cases must be accompanied by a completed "HIV Incidence Surveillance Information (HIS)" form.
