HIV is an important public health issue, and warrants prioritisation for surveillance. Accurate and complete surveillance information on new HIV diagnoses is essential, in order to monitor the epidemiology of HIV over time, and evaluate the effect of prevention strategies and interventions.

This report describes the completeness of the HIV enhanced surveillance system in Ireland over a two year period from January 1st 2012 to December 31st 2013. It is the first report to examine the completeness of HIV reporting since it became a notifiable disease in Ireland, and was included in the national Computerised Infectious Disease Reporting System, CIDR.

Data were extracted from CIDR on 23rd July 2014 and were correct at the time of publication.
