HPV is a epidemic

Has been for at least ten years so why isn’t it a required  “reportable  STI”?

‘One way to help stop the spread of STDs is by informing those who have had sexual contact with someone testing positive for an STD. This is called ?contact tracing? or ?partner notification?. In BC, syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia are reportable diseases. When there is a positive lab test for any of these diseases, sexual contacts must be notified in order to help stop the spread of infections.’ STD resource.com

I notice that HPV is not a reportable STD or STI, as they are called now.

I’m in Ontario and HPV is not reportable here or to the federal health agency.

HPV is a known cause of allot of cancer especially cervical cancer and is a communicable STD?

seems like a mini AIDS virus to me only affecting allot more people and only “3%” of infected persons even know they’re infected
