HIV surveillance information for Connecticut has been updated to December 31, 2017 using data reported through December 2018 and is now available and accessible through the HIV Statistics link above.
2018 HIV surveillance information will not be released until January 2019 to allow for more complete reporting of cases diagnosed in 2018, de-duplication with other states, and complete reporting of deaths.
In keeping with the way CDC is now displaying HIV and AIDS surveillance data, most Connecticut tables and graphs combine HIV and AIDS into “HIV disease” or simply, “HIV.” The initial year of diagnosis indicates the year first diagnosed with HIV infection regardless of HIV or AIDS status at the time of the diagnosis.
- In 2017, 281 new cases of HIV were diagnosed in Connecticut residents (7.9 per 100,000 people).
- Of the newly diagnosed cases, 71 (25%) were diagnosed with AIDS within one year of HIV diagnosis.
- In 2017, 10,560 people were living with HIV disease in Connecticut (295 per 100,000 people)
