1 Northern Virginia Title I Region HIV/AIDS Trends Data through 2005 Carrie Dolan, MPH Epidemiologist Division of Disease Prevention

2 Notes to Accompany Virginia HIV/AIDS Trends All data is reported as of December 31st, 2005 unless otherwise indicated. HIV and AIDS reporting Virginia regulations require reporting of HIV and AIDS cases separately. As a result, a person can be listed as either a Virginia HIV case, a Virginia AIDS case, or as both (HIV and AIDS). A person first diagnosed with HIV infection with no AIDS defining events will always be an HIV case. If at a later time, the patient is diagnosed as AIDS; the person will be listed as both an HIV and AIDS case. If a patient's initial diagnosis of HIV infection is accompanied with an AIDS defining event, the person will be listed as only an AIDS case. Unduplicated As a result of Virginia reporting regulations for HIV and AIDS (see note above), an individual could be reported twice, once as an HIV case and once as an AIDS case. An unduplicated report will count this individual only once. In the case of both HIV and AIDS diagnoses for one individual, age and place of residence at the time of diagnosis will derive from the HIV report. Unduplicated counts will be indicated. Living When active (e.g., review of charts at provider’s offices) or passive (e.g., receipt of death certificate from Division of Vital Records) surveillance indicates that a patient with HIV or AIDS has died, the reporting database is updated to reflect this information. Living counts will be indicated.

3 Notes to Accompany Virginia HIV/AIDS Trends Geography All location information is based on the address that is reported to the Division at the time of report. Report Date vs. Diagnosis Date Time frames are selected based on either the date of report or date of diagnosis. The report date is the date the morbidity is entered into the database. Diagnosis date is the date the disease was diagnosed by a health professional. Statistical reports prepared based on diagnosis dates are likely to change over time, given that disease reports sometimes involve time lags of varying degrees. AIDS Case Definition Change On January 1, 1993, the AIDS surveillance case definition for adolescents and adults was expanded to include three additional clinical conditions (pulmonary tuberculosis, recurrent pneumonia, and invasive cervical cancer) as well as a laboratory marker of severe immunosuppression in HIV-infected persons
