HIV surveillance is the process of collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data on individuals infected with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), the virus that can cause AIDS. We use data presented in the most recent Integrated Epidemiological Profile for HIV/AIDS (updated every five years) to guide Vermont's HIV/AIDS prevention and care/support service efforts. The comprehensive and multi-perspective profile information is also used to evaluate programs and policies, and is an essential planning tool for HIV prevention and care in our state.

To access a more complete picture of HIV in our state from a data perspective, start with our Vermont HIV Annual Reports. These reports provide information on HIV diagnoses and mortality, gender and race demographics and the age distribution of cases. They outline the behavioral risks associated with Vermont’s HIV cases. Vermont HIV Annual Reports use data that are subject to change. Each report should be read in detail and considered as a standalone summary of data available for the timeframe indicated.
