Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2020-05-19


The percent of residents (all ages) diagnosed with HIV, as defined by one or more positive laboratory tests for HIV. NOTE: August 31, 2009 was chosen as the start date because the structure and contents of the laboratory data system before that time are quite different).

Rates were age- and sex-adjusted to the Manitoba population. The definition for a positive laboratory test for HIV was developed in partnership with Cadham Provincial Laboratory and MHSAL (Manitoba Health). See the deliverable online supplement for further information.

For more information, see section 4.12 Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Prevalence in the online deliverable.
