The National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention is an operating unit of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) The National Center for HIV, STD, and TB Prevention was established in 1994 to coordinate CDC’s HIV, sexually transmitted disease (STD) prevention and tuberculosis (TB) elimination programs In 2006, CDC’s Division of Viral Hepatitis was added and the Center was renamed the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Preven- tion (NCHHSTP) In January 2012, the Division of Adolescent and School Health—whose activities focus on preventing HIV, other STDs, and teen pregnancy and promoting lifelong health among youth—joined NCHHSTP.
NCHHSTP has three overarching goals regarding HIV, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB:
• Decrease incidence of infection
• Decrease morbidity and mortality
• Decrease health disparities
NCHHSTP will track progress toward these goals using a small set of indicators These indicators represent the highest level of impact expected from the program, are measurable on a regular basis, and align with goals in other relevant plans and frameworks The set may be updated
if annual or biennial data become available to measure other important impacts, such as aware- ness of hepatitis B status among at risk populations, incidence of latent TB infection, or co-infec- tions Indicators related to HIV will be revised as necessary to align with the update of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy They may also be updated if significant changes occur in other national plans or if improved methods of measurement become available
