HIV behavioral and clinical surveillance and research help local, state, and national organizations to better understand who is at risk for HIV infection, who is recently diagnosed with HIV, and who has illness related to HIV.

The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) includes a national school-based survey conducted by CDC and state, territorial, tribal, and local surveys conducted by state, territorial, and local education and health agencies and tribal governments.
National HIV Behavioral Surveillance (NHBS) data are used to provide a behavioral context for trends seen in HIV surveillance data. They also describe populations at increased risk for HIV infection and thus provide an indication of the leading edge of the epidemic.
The CDC Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention is pleased to provide a basic guide to the cost-effectiveness analysis of prevention interventions for HIV infection and AIDS. The purpose of this guide is to help prevention program staff and planners become more familiar with potential uses of economic evaluation.
Over the years, the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention at CDC has developed a comprehensive program of HIV surveillance to collect, analyze, and disseminate data on HIV infection and AIDS. Through HIV surveillance, DHAP monitors many facets of the trends in HIV in the United States.
