Diagnoses of HIV infection in the United States and dependent areas, 2018 (preliminary)
  • Description:
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) collects, analyzes, and disseminates surveil- lance data on HIV infection; these data are one of the nation’s primary sources of information on HIV in the United States. The annual surveillance report, pub- lished by the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention, sum- marizes information about diagnosed HIV infection in the United States and dependent areas. HIV sur- veillance data are used by CDC’s public health part- ners in other federal agencies, health departments, nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, and the general public to help focus prevention efforts; plan services; allocate resources; develop policy; detect, monitor, and intervene in HIV clusters; and monitor trends in HIV infection.

    This issue of the HIV Surveillance Report presents and interprets trends in diagnoses for 2013–2017 and provides preliminary data, based on a 6-month report- ing delay, for 2018. Recognizing the changing needs for data, CDC will transition, beginning in 2020, to publishing the annual report earlier in the calendar year and will include data reported to CDC’s National HIV Surveillance System (NHSS) through December 31 of the prior year (instead of June 30). The use of data reported to CDC through December will allow for a 12-month reporting lag, and in early 2020, CDC will release a second report of 2018 data that will present and interpret trends in HIV diagnoses through 2018 (the most recent diagnosis year provided). Future edi- tions of the HIV Surveillance Report will be published according to the new time line.
