Data for Decision Making by CDC Stakeholders and Partners
These crosscutting data captured through these surveillance systems serve as a basis for programmatic, policy, and resource allocation decisions at all levels of government and within communities, including in CDC’s Notice of Funding Opportunity evaluation process. These data provide a baseline and comprehensive picture of the status of HIV prevention and care efforts nationally and at the local and regional levels. CDC and partners use these data sets to track indicators and identify potential focus populations.
Data captured from surveillance activities directly inform research, data dashboards and programmatic activities conducted by entities such as National Institutes of Health (NIH), academic partners, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and non-governmental institutions.
