  1. Completeness of AIDS reporting in Switzerland : a study based on deaths between December 1987 and June 1990.

    Article - En anglais


    To assess completeness and determinants of reporting to the AIDS registry of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health.

    Design and methods

    Death certificates indicative of AIDS or HIV for deaths occurring between December 1987 and june 1990 were reviewed and compared with reports to the AIDS registry.


    The completeness of the AIDS registry was 68%. However, almost all cases have now been ascertained, because more than 90% of unreported AIDS cases are detected when death certificates are reviewed.

    Thus, the ongoing review of death certificates adds to the total case ascertainment.
