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.
