Revision History

Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.

Description of Changes Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch: 
The original baseline and baseline year were revised from 55.2 to 45.8 and from 2008-08 to 2006-10, respectively. The target was adjusted from 60.7 to 50.4 to reflect the revised baseline using the original target-setting method. In 2013, HIV-17.2 was archived with data because in response to NHAS, CDC has adopted a high impact approach to HIV prevention concentrates resources on subpopulations disproportionately affected by HIV rather than the general population.
