Improving HIV Surveillance and Prevention Intervention Efforts among Hispanic or Latino Migrant Communities

The National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) aims to reduce the number of people who become infected with HIV, increase access to care and optimize health outcomes for people living with HIV, and reduce HIV-related health disparities. The NHAS calls for intensifying culturally appropriate HIV prevention efforts for Hispanics or Latinos due to the increased burden of HIV in this sub-population. The NHAS implementation strategy requires the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide suggestions for improving HIV surveillance and prevention intervention efforts among Hispanic or Latino migrant communities in the U.S. states that border Mexico: Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas. This document addresses both HIV surveillance and prevention and is presented in 2 parts: Part A is entitled “Improving HIV Surveillance” and Part B is entitled “Improving HIV Prevention Intervention Efforts.”
