What's New in AtlasPlus
CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) has added 11 new indicators to NCHHSTP AtlasPlus that increase access to information on HIV and, for the first time, social determinants of health. AtlasPlus gives you quick access to more than 15 years of CDC’s surveillance data on HIV, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and tuberculosis (TB). Users can now view social and economic data in conjunction with HIV, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB infections.
- 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.
