HIV/AIDS Surveillance Data

Data for HIV and AIDS cases reported to the Bureau of HIV Prevention and Control are now available on the HIV/AIDS Surveillance Data EpiQuery Module. EpiQuery is an interactive, user-friendly system designed to guide users through basic data analysis of aggregate-level data.

The HIV Epidemiology and Field Services Program (HEFSP) of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) is authorized by the New York State Department of Health1 to conduct HIV/AIDS surveillance in New York City (NYC). HEFSP manages the HIV surveillance registry, a population-based registry of all diagnoses of AIDS (since 1981) and HIV infection (since 2000) in NYC reported to the DOHMH. The Registry contains select demographic, HIV transmission risk and clinical information on persons diagnosed with HIV in NYC, as well as all Western blot tests, viral load tests, CD4 counts, and HIV genotypes reportable to DOHMH under New York State law.1
