HIV case information is collected on individuals who are HIV- infected, but have not progressed to AIDS. This information is collected using a non-name system. Diagnosis year for HIV infection identifies when an HIV-infected individual tested confidentially and/or entered medical care; it does not indicate when infection occurred nor when an individual first tested positive.
Pediatric HIV infection surveillance is conducted through a separate surveillance system, the Pediatric Spectrum of Disease (PSD) Project. Data from this study is included in quarterly reports.
