OHTNNews, News


The Ontario HIV Epidemiology and Surveillance Initiative (OHESI) is pleased to announce the release of a new report titled “HIV Testing in Ontario, 2019”. 

It describes the trends in HIV testing in Ontario over the past decade (2010-2019), with a focus on HIV tests in 2019, broken down down by type of test (nominal, coded, and anonymous), sex, age, HIV exposure category, and geographic location (health regions), as well as information specific to rapid/point-of-care (POC) and prenatal HIV testing.

New to this report are analysis by HIV test submitter type and by transgender identity and race/ethnicity (based on the new HIV test requisition implemented in 2018).
