    Executive summary -- Introduction -- Indicator summaries -- State profiles -- Technical notes.

    Over the past 30 years, tremendous progress has been made in the prevention and treatment of HIV infection. Not all Americans have benefited equally from this progress, however. The burden of HIV infection, the reach of HIV testing, and the health of people living with HIV vary widely across the United States. Understanding the current status of HIV prevention and care outcomes in states informs our efforts to achieve our nation’s HIV prevention goals and safeguard the health of all people who are at-risk of, or living with, HIV in each state. The purpose of the State HIV Prevention Progress Report (SPR) is to provide state-level data that show how states are doing in relation to key national goals. The burden of HIV and the response to it vary widely from state to state. Differences among states are due to a complex array of social, demographic, political, and economic factors as well as the capacity of public health, health care systems, and the community to combat HIV. Achieving our nation’s HIV prevention and care goals requires actively using data to monitor and assess progress and then, on the basis of the data, refining and improving programs as needed in the context of each state. The SPR is one of several reports that the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), produces to routinely monitor progress in HIV prevention and care in order to inform national and local efforts to improve the effectiveness of HIV prevention and care programs. This report monitors HIV outcomes at the state population level but does not specifically evaluate CDC-funded activities. For 3 indicators (HIV testing, late-stage diagnosis, and death rate), the report includes data on all 50 states and the District of Columbia. For the other 3 indicators (linkage to HIV medical care, retention in HIV medical care, and viral suppression), the data are restricted to the District of Columbia and the 18 states that had complete CD4 and viral load laboratory reporting.
