Connecticut HIV surveillance data has been updated to include cases identified in 2018 using data reported through December 2019 and is now available on the HIV Statistics web page.
Preliminary 2019 HIV surveillance data will be released in June however finalized data will not be released until January 2021 to allow for reporting delay, de-duplication with other surveillance jurisdictions, and complete reporting of deaths.
In alignment with CDC HIV and AIDS Surveillance Reports, most Connecticut tables and graphs combine HIV and AIDS into “HIV disease” or simply, “HIV.” The initial year of diagnosis indicates the year HIV infection was first diagnosed regardless of HIV stage at the time of the diagnosis.
