  • Description:
    Data to Care (D2C) is a public health strategy that uses HIV surveillance and other data to support the HIV Care Continuum, by identifying persons living with HIV who are in need of HIV medical care or other services and facilitating linkage to these services. The primary goals of D2C are to increase the number of persons with diagnosed HIV who are engaged in HIV medical care and to increase the number of HIV-diagnosed persons who are virally suppressed, which are consistent with national HIV prevention goals (https://www.hiv.gov/federal-response/national-hiv-aids-strategy/overview).

    Jurisdictions should include the active use of HIV surveillance data as part of their comprehensive strategy for linkage to and re-engagement in care activities. Programs currently implementing D2C have shown improved surveillance data quality, better collaboration among surveillance, prevention and care and treatment staff, and successful linkage to or re-engagement in care for persons living with HIV. Some programs have also found D2C to be an efficient strategy for offering expanded partner services for persons living with HIV not newly diagnosed, and an opportunity to re-interview individuals out of care, conduct partner notification and offer testing and other prevention services. Finally, some programs have begun to use D2C methods to identify and follow-up with HIV diagnosed individuals who may be in care, but are not virally suppressed, and may need adherence support or other services. Because D2C activities require collaborative efforts between the health department, HIV medical providers, and essential support service providers, D2C provides important opportunities for enhancing existing collaborations. In preparing your health department’s funding application for PS18-1802, you should include plans to integrate D2C activities as part of your health department’s overall HIV prevention program.
