Using HIV Surveillance Data to Support the HIV Care Continuum
Data to Care is a new public health strategy that aims to use HIV surveillance data to identify HIV-diagnosed individuals not in care, link them to care, and support the HIV Care Continuum.
We have designed this toolkit to share information and resources to assist health departments and their partners in developing and implementing a Data to Care program.
A number of jurisdictions are exploring using various methodologies to implement this strategy, including:
- Health Department Model - Health department-initiated linkage and re-engagement outreach
- Healthcare Provider Model - Healthcare provider-initiated linkage and re-engagement outreach
- Combination Health Department/Healthcare Provider Model - A combination of both approaches
Public health officials working in HIV prevention and surveillance are familiar with many of the important considerations and safeguards that they must address when developing a Data to Care program. We will continue to add successful approaches and best practices to this Web site as jurisdictions gain more experience implementing Data to Care programs.
Descriptions of Data to Care programs or models shared on this site are for illustrative purposes only. The methods might not have been evaluated and, thus, statements about their efficacy or effectiveness cannot be made.
