The Surveillance System Helps Health Officials Track and Control HIV/AIDs Incidences

CDC’s HIV/AIDS surveillance system is the nation’s source to find current information used to track and monitor trends in HIV and AIDS incidence and prevalence. The CDC supports health officials and programs in disease control and prevention activities to collect and analyze HIV and AIDS data. This information helps identify those being affected around the country and determines the solution for optimal care.

The ultimate surveillance goal is a system that combines information on HIV infection, disease progression, behavior, and characteristics of people at high risk. By meeting this goal, CDC can direct HIV prevention funding to where it is needed the most.

In addition to HIV surveillance reports, health professionals can also utilize the NCHHSTP AtlasPlus page for more data on HIV, gonorrhea, and syphilis, as well as other diseases such as tuberculosis and hepatitis.
