HIV Name-Based Reporting

Name-based reporting is the system all states use for AIDS diagnoses. Vermont was one of four states that used a different system for reporting HIV diagnoses. At the strong urging of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and of the Health Resources and Services Administration, Vermont has joined the remaining states in switching to HIV name-based reporting.
