Respond quickly to potential HIV outbreaks to get needed prevention and treatment services to people who need them

Cutting-edge HIV prevention technologies and strategies now allow CDC to help local public health officials identify where HIV prevention and treatment services are most urgently needed.

Real-time response systems are key to ending the HIV epidemic in the United States. While CDC has been working to increase response capacity nationwide, not all areas have the resources to identify, investigate, and respond to potential HIV outbreaks.

CDC will assess and address gaps in staffing, expertise, and data management systems that prevent states and local areas from being able to fully investigate and respond to increases in HIV transmission and outbreaks — and to take HIV prevention and treatment resources to where they are needed quickly.
