AIDSVu: Mapping AIDS

AIDSVu provides a high-resolution view of the geography of HIV in the United States, 30 years into the epidemic. It is an online tool that allows users to visually explore the HIV epidemic alongside critical resources such as HIV testing center locations and NIH-Funded HIV Prevention & Vaccine Trials Sites.

About AIDSVu

With the 30th anniversary of the AIDS epidemic being marked this month, public health researchers are unveiling a new interactive online map that provides the most detailed publicly available view of the number of people living with an HIV diagnosis in the United States by state and county.  

The site, known as AIDSVu, features data obtained from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, (CDC), and compiled by researchers at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University. It is the first online tool to link state and county-level HIV prevalence data with local HIV testing sites, information about state AIDS drug assistance programs and estimates of the percentage of HIV diagnoses that are made late in the course of the disease.
