Case-based data are not exhaustive because of reporting delays (cases reported several months or years after the diagnosis) and underreporting (cases that are diagnosed but never reported). The most recent estimates of underreporting in France are 41% in 2007-2009 for AIDS and 30% in 2015 for HIV.  To assess the real numbers and trends of HIV and AIDS diagnoses in France, it is essential to use adjusted data, which take into account reporting delays, underreporting and missing data (incomplete reports). Adjusting for these factors, the estimated number of new HIV diagnoses were 5,997 95%CI[5,806-6,188] in 2015 and  6,003 [5,751-6,255] in 2016. The estimated numbers of new AIDS diagnoses were  1,092 [1,040-1,144] in 2015 and  863 [771-955] in 2016. The French HIV/AIDS reporting system has changed in 2016.

HIV was made a notifiable disease in September 2011. The HIV reporting system was modified substantially in 2012. AIDS cases and deaths among AIDS cases are now only reported if at the time of HIV diagnosis. HIV diagnoses include a growing proportion of 'previous positive' persons, who are transferring their HIV care when moving to Ireland and tested positive and notified within the Irish system when moving to the country. There was a change in the implementation of the case definition in 2015 (requiring confirmatory testing on a single sample rather than two samples) which resulted in more persons being notified to the surveillance system.

North Macedonia
AIDS cases only include people diagnosed with AIDS at the time of HIV diagnosis
New HIV diagnoses who have AIDS are reported only in in the AIDS database and AIDS tables.  The total number of new HIV diagnoses for Romania is a sum of the HIV and AIDS case reports for any given year. 
Russian Federation
HIV/AIDS surveillance data are not being reported to WHO by the Russian Federation. In the annual joint ECDC/WHO HIV/AIDS surveillance in Europe reports, published data from the Russian Federal Scientific and Methodological Centre for Prevention and Control of AIDS are included within the other countries’ reported data to provide a more complete presentation of the epidemiology of HIV in the WHO European Region.

Due to changes in HIV/AIDS surveillance system, AIDS reporting has not been mandatory since 2000.  From 2008 to 2016,  AIDS data are not reported from Sweden because the national AIDS surveillance system had been discontinued. 
Reported HIV cases exclude persons diagnosed with AIDS at the time of HIV diagnosis. Reported AIDS cases only include people diagnosed with AIDS at the time of HIV diagnosis. 
Turkmenistan has only officially reported two cases of HIV since the beginning of reporting, one of whom developed AIDS and both died. 
Data reported from Ukraine exclude Crimea and Sevastopol City for 2014-2016 and parts of the non-government controlled territories for 2015-2016; corresponding population denominators were used to compute rates. 
United Kingdom
The UK has moved toward surveillance of AIDS  within 3 months of HIV diagnoses. As a result, the AIDS figures provided for 2015-2016 are likely to be lower than those previously reported. 
No data have been reported to WHO since 2010.
