Surveillance Branch


The HIV Surveillance Branch is located in the Data Management Division of the Office of HIV Prevention and Care. The Surveillance Branch conducts epidemiologic surveillance through the ongoing and systematic collection, analysis, and interpretation of data related to HIV incidence and prevalence in Alabama. Surveillance staff document and investigate HIV cases reported by physicians, hospitals, laboratories, and other sources; exchange needed information with agencies, states, and other reporting sources; and provide demographic data for use in targeting prevention programs.

The Preliminary 2020 HIV Continuum of Care is now available. Note that 2020 data should be interpreted with extreme caution as not all reported cases have been investigated and entered into the HIV Surveillance database. 2020 data will be finalized December 31, 2021, allowing a full twelve months for reporting delays.
