Publication of National HIV Serosurveillance Summary -- Results through 1990

CDC collaborates with state and local health departments, other federal agencies, blood collection agencies, and medical research institutions to conduct human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) seroprevalence surveys and studies in a variety of sentinel populations. These activities constitute a serosurveillance network to monitor the prevalence of HIV infection in the United States. This "family" of surveys includes selected populations, including persons at increased risk (e.g., persons attending drug-treatment centers and sexually transmitted disease clinics) and broader populations (e.g., applicants for military service and childbearing women) (Figure 1).

Single copies of the publication, National HIV Serosurveillance Summary -- Results through 1990 (1), are available free from the CDC National AIDS Clearinghouse, P.O. Box 6003, Rockville, MD 20849-6003; telephone (800) 458-5231.
