HIV surveillance data for 2015 (Updated January 2017)

 

HIV surveillance information for Connecticut has been updated to December 31, 2015 using data reported through December 2016 and is now available and accessible through the link to the HIV Surveillance Program home page.


2016 HIV surveillance information will not be released until January 2018 to allow for more complete reporting of cases diagnosed in 2016, de-duplication with other states, and complete reporting of deaths.

 

In keeping with the way CDC is now displaying HIV and AIDS surveillance data, most Connecticut tables and graphs combine HIV and AIDS into “HIV disease” or simply, “HIV.” The initial year of diagnosis indicates the year first diagnosed with HIV infection regardless of HIV or AIDS status at the time of the diagnosis.


For 2017, the following have been added:

  • People living with HIV based on of current residence map
  • Trends in perinatal exposure table
  • A molecular HIV surveillance report
