CDC and its partners are pursuing a High-Impact Prevention approach to advance the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS), maximize the effectiveness of current HIV prevention methods, and improve what we know about the behaviors and risks faced by PWID.
For example, CDC HIV and AIDS diagnoses refer to the number of people diagnosed with HIV infection (regardless of stage of infection) and the number of people diagnosed with AIDS, respectively, during a given time period.
Teens often think some behaviors, like teasing and name calling, are a "normal" part of a relationship.
The terms do not indicate when the people were infected, but rather, when they were diagnosed.
CDC’S National HIV Surveillance System is the primary source for monitoring HIV trends in the United States.
CDC conducted a meta-analysis of behavioral data from national surveys to estimate the number of persons in the U. who have injected drugs to use as a denominator to calculate HIV diagnosis and prevalence rates for IDU.
These estimates and disease rate calculations also provide important tools for monitoring and characterizing the HIV epidemic in the United States as well as planning and optimizing the allocation of resources to programs serving disproportionately affected populations and addressing health inequities.Unhealthy relationships can start early and last a lifetime.
