Highlights:

This current release of the NCHHSTP Atlas presents surveillance data for HIV, AIDS, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and primary and secondary syphilis. TB and viral hepatitis surveillance data will be added by mid-year, allowing for more emphasis on mapping, display, and analyses. NCHHSTP also will be expanding its functionality over time to provide more dynamic query functions as well as county-level data. The Atlas will continue to evolve and expand its functionality for users, providing a broad look at the groups in the United States most affected by NCHHSTP?s focus diseases. The data currently available for HIV/AIDS and STDs will assist community leaders, public health professionals, policymakers, and health care providers better understand trends of these overlapping diseases. Prevention planners will be able to utilize the NCHHSTP Atlas to better determine the most effective, high-impact use of resources and prevention services.
