2018 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) – March 6, 2018

Using available data from 2015, CDC researchers found that only a small percentage of Americans – especially people of color – who could potentially benefit from pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a daily HIV prevention pill, have been prescribed it.

This graphic depicts a pie chart that illustrates the percentage of African Americans and Latinos who could benefit from pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP): 44 percent of African Americans (approximately 500,000 people) and 25 percent of Latinos (nearly 300,000 people). It also depicts a prescription pill bottle that illustrates the percentage of African Americans and Latinos who were actually prescribed the PrEP from 2015-2016: 1% of African Americans (7,000 people) and 3% of Latinos (7,600 people). This contrast illustrates the troubling fact that PrEP is not reaching most who could potentially benefit—especially people of color. It is important to note that prescription data in this analysis is limited to those filled at retail pharmacies or mail order services from September 2015-August 2016; and that racial and ethnic information are not available for one-third of the prescription data.

This graphic depicts a quotation from Dr. Eugene McCray, Director of the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP) at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): “Closing gaps is an important step for PrEP. CDC is committed to equipping providers and all people living with and at risk for HIV with the information and support needed to maximize the impact of PrEP and all proven strategies.

Eugene McCray, MD, discusses the importance of closing PrEP gaps

This graphic depicts a quotation from Dr. Jonathan Mermin, Director of the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): “One of our most powerful tools for HIV prevention remains largely on pharmacy shelves. PrEP can be a potent prescription that strengthens prevention options for people who are at high risk for HIV infection.

CDC Vital Signs: HIV Testing and Diagnosis Delays – November 28, 2017

CDC Vital Signs reports the latest data (2015) on HIV testing frequency among Americans at increased risk of infection and on how long people are living with HIV before they find out they have it.

This graphic is a table of HIV diagnosis delays by risk group and race ethnicity. By risk group, the median time from HIV infection to diagnoses in 2015 for heterosexual females: 2.5 years; females who inject drugs: 2.5 years; gay and bisexual males: 3 years; males who inject drugs: 3 years; and heterosexual males: 5 years. By race/ethnicity, the median time from HIV infection to diagnoses in 2015 for whites:  2 years; African Americans: 3 years; Latinos: 3 years; Native Americans:3.5 years; and Asian Americans: 4 years.

HIV Diagnosis Delays by Risk Group and Race/Ethnicity

The graphic is an illustrationof the key findings from the 2017 HIV testing and diagnosis delays Vital Signs report. In 2015, nearly 40,000 people in the U.S. received an HIV diagnosis. 1 in 2 people had been living with HIV 3 years or more; 1 in 4 people had been living with HIV 7 years or more; and 1 in 5 people already had the most advanced stage of HIV (AIDS).

Latest Data Show Increase in People with HIV Who have the Virus Under Control – July 27, 2017

CDC’s analysis of the 2014 U.S. HIV care continuum shows that of the estimated 1.1 million people living with HIV in the United States, 85% knew they were infected, and 49% were virally suppressed. The analysis also details differences in HIV diagnosis, care and treatment by age, race / ethnicity, transmission route, and sex.

This graphic provides an overview of two stages of the HIV care continuum. It shows that of the estimated 1.1 million people living with HIV in America, 85 percent were diagnosed and knew they had HIV, and 49 percent had the virus under control through HIV treatment.

HIV Care Continuum, by Sex, U.S., 2014

Of the estimated 1.1 million Americans living with diagnosed or undiagnosed HIV infection, 85 percent are diagnosed and about half of all Americans living with HIV are successfully controlling the virus through treatment.

HIV Care Continuum, by Transmission Route, U.S., 2014

This bar graph illustrates the HIV continuum of care for 2014 by race/ethnicity.   Of African Americans living with HIV, 84% are diagnosed, 59% are in care, 46% are receiving care, and 43% are virally suppressed.  Of Latinos living with HIV, 83% are diagnosed, 58% are in care, 48% are receiving care, and 48% are virally suppressed.  Of whites living with HIV, 88% are diagnosed, 67% are in care, 51% are receiving care, and 57% are virally suppressed.

HIV Care Continuum, by Transmission Route, U.S.

This bar graph illustrates the HIV continuum of care for 2014 by age. Of those aged 13 to 24, living with HIV, 56% are diagnosed, 41% are in care, 31% are receiving care, and 24% are virally suppressed. Of those aged 25 to 34, living with HIV, 71% are diagnosed, 51% are in care, 38% are receiving care, and 37% are virally suppressed. Of those aged 34 to 44, living with HIV, 85% are diagnosed, 61% are in care, 46% are receiving care, and 48% are virally suppressed. Of those aged 45 to 54, living with HIV, 91% are diagnosed, 67% are in care, 53% are receiving care, and 55% are virally suppressed. Of those aged 55 and older, living with HIV, 93% are diagnosed, 67% are in care, 55% are receiving care, and 57% are virally suppressed.

HIV Care Continuum, by Race/Ethnicity, U.S., 2014

This bar graph illustrates the HIV continuum of care for 2014 by transmission route. Of people who inject drugs living with HIV, 94% are diagnosed, 62% are in care, 50% are receiving care, and 47% are virally suppressed. Of gay and bisexual men living with HIV, 83% are diagnosed, 61% are in care, 48% are receiving care, and 51% are virally suppressed. Of heterosexuals living with HIV, 84% are diagnosed, 60% are in care, 47% are receiving care, and 47% are virally suppressed.

2017 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections – February 15, 2017

CDC released estimates of the number of annual HIV infections or HIV incidence (2008-2014) in the United States – overall and by transmission group.

This graphic depicts the populations where we are seeing annual HIV infections declining in the U.S. There was an overall 18 percent decline nationally from 2008-2014, 56 percent decline among people who inject drugs, 36 percent decline heterosexuals, 26 percent decline among gay and bisexual men aged 35-44 years and an 18 percent decline among gay and bisexual men aged 13-24. In 2014, there were 37,600 new HIV infections: 70 percent among gay and bisexual men (26,200 infections), 23 percent among heterosexuals (8,600 infections), 5 percent among people who inject drugs (1,700 infections) and 3 percent among gay and bisexual men who inject drugs (1,100 infections).

Estimated New HIV Infections in the US by Transmission Route

The first table illustrates state-level declines in estimated new HIV infections between 2008-2014, notably in Washington, D.C. (dropping 10 percent each year over the six-year period); Maryland (down about 8 percent annually); Pennsylvania (down about 7 percent annually); Georgia, (down about 6 percent annually); New York and North Carolina (both down about 5 percent annually); Illinois (down about 4 percent annually), and Texas (down about 2 percent annually). The second table illustrates those states that remained stable in their estimated new HIV infections from 2008-2014. CDC researchers did not find any increases in annual HIV infections in the 35 states and Washington, D.C. where annual HIV infections could be estimated; estimated new HIV infections either declined or remained stable in all of those areas.
