AIDSVu: Emory University Launches Interactive Online Map of Impact of HIV at State and County Level
The Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University launched AIDSVu (www.AIDSVu.org), an interactive online map that, 30 years into the epidemic, provides for 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 data pinpoint areas of the country where HIV prevalence rates are the highest, and where the needs for prevention, testing and treatment services are the most urgent.
AIDSVu is also 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. AIDSVu will be updated on an ongoing basis as new data and information become available
