CDC’s HIV Prevention Activities: Four Focus Areas
Supporting prevention programs – CDC provides approximately $415 million to fund prevention programs in health departments and community-based organizations working to prevent new HIV infections across the United States, as well as ongoing technical assistance and guidance to implement the most effective prevention programs. CDC also provides $11.4 million to fund HIV and STD education coordinators in state, local, and territorial agencies and tribal governments to help schools implement effective policies and practices.
Tracking the epidemic – CDC coordinates comprehensive national surveillance systems to track the HIV epidemic, risk behaviors, and usage of health care and prevention services. This information helps ensure that funding is directed to the populations and communities most in need.
Supporting prevention research – CDC supports biomedical, behavioral, and operational research to develop new HIV prevention strategies and improve existing programs.
Raising awareness – Through efforts like the Act Against AIDS communications campaign and other key partnership activities, CDC works to ensure that all Americans know the facts about HIV, are aware of their status, and understand how to protect themselves.
