CDC will host a media briefing to discuss a new Vital Signs report containing updated estimates on HIV diagnosis, care, and treatment among Americans with HIV. The report analyzes the proportion of people with HIV who have the virus under control (known as “viral suppression”) and differences by population, as well as where we stand to make the most progress.
