What’s New in AtlasPlus

The White House recently announced a pilot program to increase Monkeypox 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 CDC’s Atlas Plus.

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.

Data for 2021 and 2022 are considered preliminary until a 12-month reporting delay has been reached and should be interpreted with caution.
  • Updated 2020 and preliminary 2021 data through December 2021 on PrEP coverage at the national-, state-, and county-level.
  • 2020 data on STD diagnoses at the national-, state-, and county-level.

2. Diverse Data Characterization Capabilities

  • NEW: Region aggregation available for select indicators
  • Line graphs by year
  • Pie or bar charts for sex
  • Bar charts for age group, race/ethnicity, transmission category (HIV), and country of birth (TB)
  • Bar charts by states or by counties
  • Ability to create two side-by-side maps or charts; e.g., compare two diseases, or one disease and one social determinants of health indicator

3. Enhanced Data Visualization

  • Faster and cleaner data displays
  • Change from flash format to HTML5, which means faster and cleaner data displays, as well as mobile access
