New HIV Surveillance Supplemental Report: Monitoring Selected National HIV Prevention & Care Objectives

Jul 02, 2018 | Kim Rodgers

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) new HIV Surveillance Supplemental Report titled Monitoring Selected National HIV Prevention and Care Objectives by Using HIV Surveillance Data—United States and 6 Dependent Areas, 2016 is now available online with an accompany slide set. This year, the Monitoring Report includes care-related data from an additional 2 jurisdictions (Florida and North Carolina), making the data in this report more representative of persons living with diagnosed HIV infection (an increase from 71.9% of to 85.9%). To help gauge progress towards national goals and direct HIV prevention resources most effectively, CDC tracks the “HIV care continuum:” a series of steps from the time a person receives a diagnosis of HIV through the successful treatment of their infection with HIV medications. The data that inform the continuum are published every June in CDC’s Monitoring Report. CDC published two fact sheets explaining the various approaches and data used to develop the HIV care continuum, how it is used to improve outcomes for people living with HIV in the United States, and how it helps guide the nation’s response to HIV. The fact sheets can be found here and here. CDC is currently working on an info sheet to accompany the Monitoring Report. We’ll be sure to send your way when complete!

Overall, the Monitoring Report data show that for care outcomes among 40 jurisdictions:

  • Knowledge of status was 85.5% in 2015*
  • Linkage to care in 1 month was 75.9% in 2016
  • Receipt of care was 73.4% in 2015
  • Retention in care was 57.2% in 2015
  • Viral suppression was 59.8% in 2015

*Prevalence data, including knowledge of status, was previously included in the annual Monitoring Report, but were released earlier this year and can be found now and in the future in the annual supplemental report.
