Medical Monitoring Project (MMP)
The Medical Monitoring Project (MMP) is a surveillance system designed to learn more about the experiences and needs of people who are living with HIV. MMP is unique in that it describes comprehensive clinical and behavioral information from persons carefully sampled to represent everyone diagnosed with HIV in the United States. The data are collected through in person or telephone interviews with participants as well as a two year medical chart abstraction for all persons who have been in care. Because MMP’s estimates are designed to be locally and nationally representative, the information gathered from MMP may be used by prevention planning groups, policy leaders, health care providers, and people living with HIV to highlight disparities in care and services and to advocate for needed resources. This NOFO continues the work of CDC-RFA-PS15-1503 which expanded the scope of MMP from adults receiving HIV medical care in the United States to all adults diagnosed with HIV in the United States.
