HIV Surveillance

Our mission is to provide an accurate characterization of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Miami-Dade County for the public, including community-based organizations, researchers, city planners, policy makers, health care providers, and local, state, and national governmental officials and agencies.

We conduct active and passive surveillance to collect epidemiological information on AIDS and HIV cases. Since 1981, population-based AIDS surveillance has been used to track the progression of the HIV epidemic. However, the advent of more effective therapy that slows the progression of HIV disease have diminished the ability of AIDS surveillance data to represent trends in the incidence of HIV infection or the impact of the epidemic on the health care system. Therefore, following CDC recommendations, state and local public health agencies expanded their AIDS Surveillance activities and included surveillance for HIV infection since July 1997.

The HIV/AIDS information included on the following tables and maps represent the most recent data available locally. Should you need additional surveillance information or if you are a health care provider and need instructions on how to report an HIV or AIDS case you can contact the surveillance unit at 305-470-6953.
