What is AHEAD?
America’s HIV Epidemic Dashboard (AHEAD), is an online data visualization tool showing national and jurisdictional data on the six indicators being used to monitor our collective progress toward the overarching goals of the Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative: reducing new HIV infections by 75% by 2025 and 90% by 2030. The dashboard provides the 57 EHE jurisdictions, the federal government, and other stakeholders the most up-to-date information available about EHE progress to help inform jurisdictional and national decision making.
What data is tracked and for which jurisdictions?
AHEAD offers an aggregate, data-focused view of the EHE initiative using six indicators:
- HIV Incidence
- Knowledge of HIV Status
- HIV Diagnoses
- Linkage to HIV Medical Care
- Viral Suppression
- PrEP Coverage
Data for each indicator is provided nationally and for the 48 counties; Washington, DC; and San Juan, Puerto Rico; as well as the seven states that are engaged in Phase I of EHE. AHEAD also features data on the 21 states in which one or more EHE jurisdictions are located to provide additional context on the HIV epidemic in the areas surrounding those jurisdictions.
