  1. Fulltext. Active AIDS surveillance : hospital-based case finding in a metropolitan California County.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    Health departments that use passive surveillance alone cannot be sure of the level of complete and accurate reporting of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) cases.

    We sought to develop a model of active AIDS case reporting using limited county resources.

    Methods

    A validation study of AIDS case reporting using discharge diagnosis codes was undertaken to assess underreporting.

    Hospital-specific protocols for active surveillance were developed.
