Notices to Readers Report on National HIV Seroprevalence Surveys

CDC collaborates with state and local health departments, other federal agencies, blood collection agencies, and medical research institutions to conduct human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) seroprevalence surveys in a variety of sentinel populations. Together these surveys constitute a serosurveillance network to monitor the prevalence of HIV infection in the United States. This "family" of surveys includes studies among patients at sexually transmitted disease clinics, drug-treatment centers, women's health clinics, and tuberculosis clinics in 44 cities; patients at sentinel hospitals in 30 cities and in a network of ambulatory-care practices; childbearing women in 44 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico; and blood donors, applicants for military service, and Job Corps entrants (Figure 1).

Single copies of the publication, National HIV Seroprevalence Surveys--Summary of Results: Data from Serosurveillance Activities through 1989 (1), are available free of charge from the National AIDS Information Clearinghouse, P.O. Box 6003, Rockville, MD 20850; telephone (800) 458-5231.
