What’s New in AtlasPlus

The White House recently announced a pilot program to increase mpox vaccinations in jurisdictions who might benefit from expanded vaccination. Part of the strategy uses the estimated size of the population who are eligible for HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (HIV PrEP). The data supporting this effort can be accessed at NCHHSTP AtlasPlus.

What’s New in AtlasPlus

CDC’s National Center for HIV, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) has added updated national, state, regional, and county-level HIV, TB, and viral hepatitis data to NCHHSTP AtlasPlus, including HIV data for the Phase I counties for the Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE).

AtlasPlus gives you quick access to nearly 20 years of CDC’s surveillance data on HIV, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and tuberculosis (TB). Users can also view social and economic data in conjunction with HIV, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB infections.

AtlasPlus is:
  • Convenient: You can get the data when you want – all with a few clicks.
  • Quick: You don’t have to rely on someone else to compile and send you data.
  • Easy: You don’t need to sift through pages of surveillance reports.
  • Social: Adding the AtlasPlus button to your website makes it even easier to access and share this powerful tool.

1. NEW Data

  • 2021 data on viral hepatitis diagnoses at the national and state levels.
  • 2021 estimates from the Medical Monitoring Project on two indicators – unstable housing or homelessness and HIV stigma – representative at the national and jurisdiction-levels (for the 16 states and 1 territory that report to MMP).
  • 2021 STD diagnosis data at the national, state and county levels.
  • Updated preliminary 2022 and 2023 data on HIV diagnoses at the national, state, regional, and county level and 2022 data on linkage to HIV medical care at the national, state, regional, and county level. Data for 2022 and 2023 are considered preliminary (subject to 12-month reporting delay) and include HIV diagnoses reported to CDC through March 2023 and linkage to HIV medical care reported to CDC through December 2022.
  • Updated PrEP coverage data based on prescriptions reported through December 2022 at the national-, state-, and county-level.
