HIV Continuum of Care
Virginia’s 2020 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 2020 HCC below presents these definitions:
- Care marker: a "care marker" is defined as a CD4, viral load, or genotype testing lab, an HIV medical care visit, or an antiretroviral (ART) prescription; these are considered markers for evidence of HIV care
- Persons living with HIV as of 12/31/2020: the number of persons aware of their status, diagnosed and living with HIV with a last known residence in Virginia as of 12/31/2020
- Newly diagnosed and linked to HIV care within 30 days: persons newly diagnosed in Virginia in 2020 and linked to HIV care within 30 days from initial diagnosis
- Evidence of HIV care in 2020: persons living with HIV as of 12/31/2020 who had at least one care marker in calendar year (CY) 2020
- Retained in HIV care in 2020: persons living with HIV as of 12/31/2020 who had at least two care markers at least 3 months (90 days) apart in CY 2020
- Virally suppressed in 2020: persons living with HIV as of 12/31/2020 with their most recent viral load in CY 2020 measuring at <200 copies/milliliter (mL)
All data presented for Virginia’s 2020 HCC comes from the Care Markers Database within the Division of Disease Prevention. Data are reported as of December 2020 and accessed May 2021. Data are still considered preliminary.

- This form may be used to request chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and HIV data. For other data requests, please visit the VDH data portal.
Important Notes Regarding HIV and STD Data Requests:
- It is important to note that HIV data is not final until 12 months following diagnosis date. Data on sexually transmitted diseases (STD; chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis) are considered complete in May following the close of the year.
- To maintain confidentiality, suppression may be warranted for certain data where population size and/or number of cases are too small to report. Zip codes in Virginia are subject to change over time; therefore, requests for number of cases or rates by zip code may not be an accurate geographic unit of measure.
- Rates for a partial year of data are not calculated.
- Requests for data below the county level must be reviewed by DDP management and approved on a case-by-case basis. Data requests that are especially complex may be subject to the conditions of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and a charge for staff time may be warranted. Data to be used for research purposes may require review by the VDH Institutional Review Board (IRB).
