PDF 957 KB
Under the South Australian Public Health Act 2011, medical practitioners and diagnostic laboratories are required to notify SA Health of cases suspected of having or diagnosed with specified infections or diseases. Notification is also required if a notifiable infection or disease has caused or contributed to the death of a person – even if the condition has already been notified. These infections or diseases are commonly referred to as 'notifiable conditions’.
The conditions which are notifiable are specified in the Regulations under the Act (see SA Legislation website).
Please note that conditions listed below with a telephone number require urgent notification by phoning the Communicable Disease Control Branch (CDCB) 24 hours, 7 days a week on 1300 232 272.
All infections should be notified within three days of suspecting or confirming a diagnosis.
Most notifiable conditions can be reported quickly and easily online using the purple form.
