  • Description:
    Commentary -- Technical Notes -- Tables: Section 1. Diagnoses of HIV infection and diagnoses of infection classified as Stage 3 (AIDS); Section 2. Deaths and survival after a diagnosis of HIV infection or Stage 3 (AIDS) classification; Section 3. Persons living with diagnosed HIV infection or with infection ever classified as Stage 3 (AIDS) prevalence; Section 4. Data for states and metropolitan areas -- Web addresses for reports of state and local HIV surveillance.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) collects, analyzes, and disseminates surveil- lance data on HIV infection and AIDS; these data are one of the nation’s primary sources of information on the HIV epidemic in the United States. The annual surveillance report, published by the Division of HIV/ AIDS Prevention (DHAP), summarizes information about diagnosed HIV infection and AIDS in the United States and dependent areas. HIV surveillance data are used by CDC’s public health partners in other federal agencies, health departments, nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, and the general public to help focus prevention efforts, plan services, allocate resources, develop policy, and monitor trends in HIV infection. The presentation of 2010 data is based on the date of diagnosis of HIV infection or AIDS (diagnosis as of December 31, 2010; reported to CDC as of June 30, 2011), not the date of report to CDC. The term diagnosis of HIV infection refers to a diagnosis of HIV infection regardless of the person’s AIDS status at the time of diagnosis. HIV diagnoses do not neces- sarily represent new infections (incidence): some per- sons were infected recently, and others were infected at some time in the past. Because of reporting delays, the actual numbers of cases diagnosed in a given year may be higher than the numbers of diagnoses of HIV infection (unadjusted) presented for recent years; however, the numbers of diagnoses for a calendar year typically stabilize after 2 to 3 years of reporting.
