HIV Testing at CDC-Funded Sites, United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, 2008-2009

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) testing is essential for improving the health of people living with HIV and reducing new HIV infections. HIV testing improves the health of people living with HIV by identifying undiagnosed HIV infection and linking persons with HIV to medical care, treatment, and prevention services. HIV testing also significantly reduces the risk of HIV transmission among those who learn they are living with HIV.

In 2002, CDC developed the National HIV Behavioral Surveillance (NHBS) System to help state and local health departments in areas with high AIDS prevalence monitor selected behaviors and assess the use of prevention programs and services in 3 groups at high risk of HIV infection: MSM, IDUs, and heterosexuals. This report summarizes data gathered from May 2005 through February 2006, the first data collec¬tion cycle among IDUs. The report provides descriptive data that serve as a baseline for monitoring trends in risk behaviors and that aid in identifying opportunities to prevent HIV among IDUs.
