Virginia’s 2016 HIV Continuum of Care (HCC) is a framework used to monitor health outcomes of persons living with HIV in Virginia from initial diagnosis to viral suppression. The 2016 HCC below presents these definitions:

Measure

The number of persons aware of their status, diagnosed and living with HIV with a last known residence in Virginia as of 12/31/2016

Persons living with HIV as of 12/31/2016 who had at least one CD4 or viral load lab, HIV medical care visit, or antiretroviral (ART) prescription in calendar year (CY) 2016

Retained in HIV care in 2016

Persons living with HIV as of 12/31/2016 who had at least two CD4 or viral load labs, HIV medical care visits, or ART prescriptions at least 3 months (90 days) apart in CY 2016

Virally suppressed in 2016

Persons living with HIV as of 12/31/2016 with their most recent viral load in CY 2016 measuring at <200 copies/milliliter (mL)

Data to Care


HIV/AIDS Annual Reports

Note: In December 2016, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) HIV Surveillance team completed a series of death matches and address updates to the Enhanced HIV/AIDS Reporting System (eHARS). These updates to the HIV surveillance system resulted in a reduction of 601 cases of persons living with HIV in Virginia as of December 31, 2015 from the 2015 Annual Report to the 2016 Annual Report. These quality assurance checks are completed annually to more accurately define the HIV epidemic in Virginia and to better assess health outcomes for all persons living with HIV in the Commonwealth. All 2016 data is considered preliminary and may be incomplete due to reporting delay.
