Wisconsin Stat. § 252.15 requires HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) cases to be reported to the state epidemiologist confidentially.

Case reports must be submitted by:

  • Private providers.
  • Hospitals.
  • Clinics.
  • Ambulatory care facilities.
  • Sexually transmitted disease clinics.
  • Family planning clinics.
  • Perinatal clinics.
  • Tribal health clinics.
  • Blood and plasma centers.
  • The correctional system.
  • Military entrance processing stations.
