Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A variety of surveillance methods are used to characterize the epidemic of HIV infection and AIDS. Such surveillance includes AIDS case reporting, reporting of diagnosed HIV infections, and HIV seroprevalence surveys among targeted sentinel populations. The need for additional surveillance systems to monitor HIV-related risk behaviors has been increasingly evident. One approach to behavioral surveillance, the CDC's Supplement to HIV-AIDS Surveillance project, uses the infrastructure of HIV infection and AIDS case reporting to collect additional information on risk behaviors among HIV-infected persons, who by definition represent those at highest risk.
