Health officials in British Columbia have made HIV a reportable communicable disease in the province, making it the last Canadian province to do so, The [Vancouver] Province reports. AIDS experts say the decision to begin reporting HIV cases will allow the federal and provincial officials to better track the spread of HIV in the province. AIDS has been a reportable disease in British Columbia since 1983. The new confidential HIV reporting policy will go into effect later this year.
