Abstract

We evaluated changes in rates of new HIV diagnoses in Canada. Our analyses were based on Health Canada data obtained for the period 1995 to 2011. British Columbia, of all Canadian jurisdictions, has had the largest decline in the rate of HIV new diagnoses and in lifetime costs averted over the study period.
