Preventing new HIV infections is essential to improving health in the United States. The HIV care continuum (diagnosis, retention in medical care, prescription of antiretroviral therapy, and viral suppression) has been an important framework for understanding HIV care, morbidity, and mortality, and has been recently extended by CDC and CAMP team members into models of HIV transmission and prevention. This project builds on these models to answer priority questions about the future trajectory of the HIV epidemic and impact of interventions, develop web-based tools of those models, and conduct analyses to strengthen national estimates of the HIV care continuum. This project is conducted in partnership with scientists in the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention.
