Ending the Epidemic with AHEAD
The availability of new data, such as quarterly data from the CDC on America's HIV Epidemic Analysis Dashboard (AHEAD) addresses the need for reliable and up-to-date data so EHE priority areas can better coordinate responses to the epidemic at local levels.
The U.S. Department of Health and Humans Services (HHS), through its Office of Infectious Disease and HIV/AIDS Policy (OIDP), developed a unique data visualization tool that displays the most up-to-date, standardized, HIV indicator data from the CDC along with progress data for the 50 U.S. states and EHE goals for each priority area. AHEAD affords stakeholders the opportunity to:
Stakeholders can also access data about the following demographics and transmission variables:
AHEAD currently displays baseline data, progress data, and indicator targets for six indicators. Using 2017 baseline data for the HIV indicators, AHEAD will enable users to monitor progress towards meeting targets. Data are displayed for each of the Phase I EHE jurisdictions [48 counties, Washington, D.C. and San Juan, PR, which accounted for more than 50% of all U.S. HIV diagnoses in 2016 and 2017 as well as seven (primarily southern) states with high burdens of HIV in rural communities].
Multiple types of interactive analysis (e.g. trend analysis, significance testing)
