Corporate Authors:Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.) ; United States. Health Resources and Services Administration. ;
Description:This guidance has been developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to assist persons who compile and interpret HIV prevention and care data for state, territorial, or local HIV epidemiologic profiles. The purpose of the document is to provide one set of guidance to help profile writers produce integrated epidemiologic profiles and advise them concerning how to interpret epidemiologic data in ways that are consistent and useful in meeting the planning and evaluation needs of both HIV prevention and care programs. Integrating prevention and care data should help to streamline the work of health department staff, HIV planning groups, and planning councils by reducing duplicated effort and by promoting consistency and comparability of data and terms in prevention as well as care planning.
The guidelines are written in 5 chapters that (1) provide an overview of integrated HIV epidemiologic profiles, (2) outline what writers need to do to start creating a comprehensive profile, (3) address how to describe the burden of HIV in a jurisdiction, (4) describe the process of completing the profile, and (5) address special issues that may arise during the writing of the profile. Each chapter is organized into sections.
