Published Date:November 2014

Description:In November 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a comprehensive analysis showing that only one-third of the 1.2 million Americans living with HIV have their virus under control.
The study, based on HIV prevalence data from 2011 and other data sources, includes information on the proportion of people engaged in each of the main stages of HIV care:
• HIV testing and diagnosis
• Engagement in care
• Provision of antiretroviral therapy
• Achieving “viral suppression,” by using treatment to keep HIV at a level that helps individuals stay healthy and reduces the risk of transmitting the virus to others
The analysis also provides the most up-to-date look at HIV care by age, race/ethnicity, gender, and risk group. These findings are summarized in the charts below.
