AIDSVu is an interactive online map illustrating the prevalence of HIV in the United States. The national, state and local map views on AIDSVu allow users to visually explore the HIV epidemic alongside critical resources such as HIV testing center locations, HIV treatment center locations, and NIH-Funded HIV Prevention & Vaccine Trials Sites. The map also lets users filter HIV prevalence data by race/ethnicity, sex and age, and see how HIV prevalence is related to various social determinants of health, such as educational attainment and poverty.
The state- and county-level data on AIDSVu come from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) national HIV surveillance database, which is comprised of HIV surveillance reports from state and local health departments. ZIP code and census tract data come directly from state, county and city health departments, depending on which entity is responsible for HIV surveillance in a particular geographic area. AIDSVu is updated on an ongoing basis with HIV surveillance data released by CDC, as well as with new data and information from other sources as they become available.
AIDSVu receives ongoing support and guidance from the following groups:
- The AIDSVu Advisory Committee, chaired by Dr. Jim Curran, Dean of the Rollins School of Public Health of Emory University, which consists of key stakeholders who provide oversight and guidance for the project;
- The AIDSVu Technical Advisory Group, which consists of HIV surveillance technical experts who provide input regarding data and technical issues; and,
- The AIDSVu Prevention and Treatment Advisory Committee, which consists of HIV prevention professionals working in health departments across the country who provide input on maximizing AIDSVu’s value for prevention efforts.
