New Data on AHEAD

Recently, HHS updated America’s HIV Epidemic Analysis Dashboard (AHEAD) with new data for all six EHE indicators at the national, state/territory, and county/area levels. HHS is committed to presenting the most current HIV indicator data to monitor progress of the EHE initiative as data become available from CDC.

This new data lets stakeholders closely examine how HIV prevention and treatment policies, services, and interventions can be enhanced, modified, sustained, and replicated over the next 12 months. Stakeholders, such as public health departments, community-based providers and planners can readily identify new or emerging gaps and fine-tune their HIV services to help achieve the first EHE goal of 75% reduction of HIV transmissions by 2025.

Along with 2017 and 2018 data, stakeholders can now see provisional 2019 annual data for all six indicators, and preliminary 2020 annual diagnoses data, and 2020 cumulative quarterly data for linkage to care and PrEP coverage indicators. AHEAD now has more than just singular data points: stakeholders can now begin to contextualize these new data compared to previous years to see and monitor trends. For example, 2019 national incidence data are displayed indicating a downward trend, which is moving in the right direction to meet the EHE goals.

In addition to the current data on AHEAD, HHS has added the following data:

National:

  • Demographic/transmission categories for:
    • 2019 provisional annual for incidence, knowledge of status, viral suppression
    • 2020 preliminary cumulative quarterly Q3 for linkage to care (as of Dec 2020) and PrEP coverage (as of Sep 2020)
    • 2020 preliminary annual data as of Dec 2020 for Diagnoses
  • Totals for:
    • 2019 provisional annual for incidence, knowledge of status, viral suppression
    • 2020 preliminary cumulative quarterly Q3 for linkage to care (as of Dec 2020) and PrEP coverage (as of Sep 2020)
    • 2020 preliminary annual data as of Dec 2020 for Diagnoses

State/territory:

  • Totals for:
    • 2019 provisional annual for incidence, knowledge of status, viral suppression

    • 2020 preliminary annual data as of Dec 2020 for Diagnoses

County/area:

  • Totals for:
    • 2019 provisional annual for incidence, knowledge of status, viral suppression
