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.
