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. CDC can 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. CDC can also help these jurisdictions take HIV prevention and treatment resources quickly to where they are needed. Real-time response systems are key to ending the HIV epidemic in the United States.
Resources are available for the HIV prevention workforce to increase their capacity to identify, investigate, and respond to potential HIV outbreaks.
