Disease Reporting

Accurate and timely reporting of hepatitis, STDs, HIV, and AIDS cases are necessary for successful disease prevention and control. Reporting allows programs to visualize trends, identify potential outbreaks, initiate early interventions, and assist healthcare providers in the medical management of partners who may be infected.

What to Report

Both laboratories and health care providers are mandated to report the following diseases within three working days of confirmation (Hawai‘i Administrative Rules, Title 11, Chapter 156 & Hawai’i Statute Chapter 325, Section 2)

  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C
  • HIV
  • AIDS
  • Chlamydia trachomatis
  • Neiserria gonorrheae
  • Treponema pallidum (syphilis)
  • Haemophilus ducreyi (chancroid)
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)

Confidentiality of case records is protected by state law in Chapter 325, section 101. The department may conduct investigation when requested by an authorized representative of the Director (Statute 321-29). Hawai‘i Department of Health and its representative are required to maintain confidentiality on all patient’s information or record (Statute 325-101).
