The National HIV Surveillance System (NHSS) is the mechanism through which the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD and TB Prevention, Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention, HIV Incidence and Case Surveillance Branch (NCHHSTP/DHAP/ HICSB) monitors trends in HIV infection in the United States to guide the characteristics of the HIV burden in the US public health action at the Federal, state, and local levels. The NHSS is comprised of two components:
Component A - Case surveillance is to be conducted in all state health departments, six independently funded local health departments (Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, the City of Philadelphia and San Francisco), the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the U.S Virgin Islands. Optional activities under component A: (1) Molecular HIV Surveillance (MHS), (2) Perinatal HIV Exposure Surveillance, (3) Geocoding and Data Linkage.
Component B – Incidence surveillance will be conducted in the 25 health departments previously funded for HIV Incidence Surveillance under FOA PS-08-802.
The purpose of the program is to monitor the HIV burden through national surveillance of persons infected with HIV (i.e., routine reporting of persons diagnosed with HIV infection; HIV incidence surveillance; perinatal HIV exposure surveillance; molecular HIV surveillance reporting; and geocoding to spatially display data and to enhance understanding of social determinants of health affecting communities impacted by HIV, etc.).
