Complete Indicator Profile of HIV Infection Diagnoses

Definition

Rate of newly reported cases of HIV by date of diagnosis per 100,000 population.

Numerator

Number of persons newly diagnosed with HIV

Denominator

Total resident population

Why Is This Important?

"An estimated 35,000 North Carolinians have HIV/AIDS (including those who are unaware of their status). Furthermore, HIV/AIDS was the seventh leading cause of death among 25- to 44-year-olds in 2007." - North Carolina Institute of Medicine. Healthy North Carolina 2020: A Better State of Health.

Other Objectives

Healthy North Carolina 2020

How Are We Doing?

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
HIV Surveillance reports, the 2010 rate for North Carolina was 17.8 new cases of HIV per 100,000 population. The total number of new HIV diagnoses in North Carolina was 1,487 in 2010, down from a peak of 1,812 new diagnoses in 2008.

What Is Being Done?

In 2006, North Carolina developed and began to implement three effective and integrated HIV/AIDS prevention and care strategies, which are: 1) identifying new cases of HIV early; 2) linking newly identified HIV-positive individuals into care and treatment programs; and, 3) keeping HIV-positive individuals in care and treatment.

Data Notes

Estimated numbers resulted from statistical adjustment that accounted for reporting delays, but not for incomplete reporting. Rates are per 100,000 population. The HNC 2020 target, which is the target to be reached by 2020, is repeated in the data table for graphing purposes.

Data Notes

North Carolina vs. United States data are obtained from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC data include statistical adjustment for reporting delays, and are not comparable to the state rates available from the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services Epidemiology Section's HIV/STD Surveillance Reports.

Data Notes

County level data is available from the Epidemiology Section, which does not include any statistical adjustment for reporting delays. Therefore, the state rate is not comparable between the Epidemiology Section and the CDC. The Epidemiology Section periodically updates their rates to include additional reported cases; see HIV/STD Facts and Figures for the most comprehensive data. **Rates are displayed only for counties that have a minimum of 10 new diagnoses. Data for the U.S. is for 2010.
