  • Description:
    As the epidemic of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) has evolved over the past 10 years, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has been at the forefront of the scientific efforts that have characterized HIV-AIDS research. Because of CDC's central role in these efforts, the medical and public health communities have come to depend on the agency for prompt reporting of new developments related to the epidemiology of HIV infection and AIDS and for advice on risk management, prevention, and control. CDC disseminates this information through epidemiologic updates and prevention guidelines published in the periodical, Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, through articles in scientific journals and summary tabulations of AIDS case data and HIV seroprevalence data, and through interviews and presentations at scientific meetings. These formal information dissemination activities are supplemented with training and support efforts directed at health care providers, health department and laboratory personnel, educators, and centralized HIV-AIDS information resources. As questions are answered, controversies resolved, and new research applications explored, CDC will continue to provide the medical and public health communities with the most recent epidemiologic information and recommendations developed to help direct efforts in HIV prevention and risk reduction.
