    "The HIV/AIDS epidemic was first recognized in the United States in 1981. Since that time, all states and U.S. dependent areas have conducted AIDS surveillance using a standardized, confidential name-based reporting system. Since 1985, many states and U.S. dependent areas have also implemented HIV case reporting as part of their comprehensive HIV/AIDS surveillance programs. This report presents estimated numbers of cases of HIV/AIDS (cases of HIV infection, regardless whether they have progressed to AIDS) from the 37 areas (33 states and 4 U.S. dependent areas) that have had confidential name-based HIV infection reporting long enough (i.e., since at least 2001) for data collection to stabilize and for adjustment of the data to monitor trends. According to the number of reported AIDS cases, these 33 states represent approximately 63% of the epidemic in the United States. From 2001 through 2005, the total number of new cases of HIV/AIDS in the 33 states decreased slightly; however, HIV/AIDS prevalence (i.e., the number of persons living with HIV/AIDS) increased during this time. At the end of 2005, an estimated 475,220 persons in the 33 states had been given a diagnosis and were living with HIV/AIDS. The figure on the cover depicts the estimated number of new cases of HIV/AIDS from 2001 through 2005, by race/ethnicity, for adults and adolescents residing in the 33 states." - p. 5
