Duty to Report - Notifiable Diseases List

July 5, 2019

 

The New PUBLIC HEALTH PROTECTION AND PROMOTION ACT (PHPPA) was enacted on July 1, 2019. This Act mandates health care professionals with the DUTY TO REPORT a set of communicable diseases known as “Notifiable Diseases”.

The Notifiable Diseases list and the written report are attached to this correspondence. Please note: the diseases for which suspect or confirmed diagnosis require immediate reporting to the Medical Officers of Health (MOH) on-call.

Failing to comply with Duty to Report may result in verbal and written notifications. If repeated offences are reported, the MOH may report the lack of compliance with the PHPPA to the ARNNL. Please click here to view the Duty to Report - Notifiable Diseases List.
