Data For Impact

CDC collects, analyses, interprets, and disseminates data and then develops resource materials that describe the HIV landscape in the United States, help stakeholders understand successes and gaps in HIV prevention and care, and ensure understanding of emerging trends.

HIV Prevention Profiles

The HIV prevention profiles highlight the current HIV prevention challenges, opportunities, and investments in select jurisdictions across the nation.

HIV Surveillance Reports

CDC’s HIV surveillance reports contain data on and analyses of select trends in HIV prevention and care. These trends include the rates of HIV diagnoses, the number of people with HIV, and the number of people who are receiving HIV medical care. CDC analyses also help to identify trends among key populations, especially those at increased risk of HIV infection.

Understanding HIV Indicators and Data

Key Populations

While all Americans are affected by the HIV epidemic, some populations bear an especially heavy burden and account for the largest numbers of HIV infections. Success in HIV prevention can only be achieved by addressing these disparities and working to achieve health equity.
