The National HIV Surveillance System (NHSS) is the nation's source of timely information used to track the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The term HIV/AIDS is used to refer to 3 categories of diagnoses collectively: (1) a diagnosis of HIV infection (not AIDS), (2) a diagnosis of HIV infection and a later diagnosis of AIDS, and (3) concurrent diagnoses of HIV infection and AIDS. HIV/AIDS surveillance is conducted by health departments in each state or territory and the District of Columbia. Data are collected using standard confidential case reports and are reported to CDC without personal identifiers.
