HIV in the U.S. Deep South Trends Report 2008–2019
This report expands on the findings from a previous report on HIV surveillance data from 2008-2016 with a focus on the U.S. South (from the Southern HIV/AIDS Strategy Initiative (SASI); now part of the Southern AIDS Coalition) by including the most recent HIV surveillance data from 2017-2019. The recent trend data continues to support the research literature that the U.S. South, particularly the U.S. Deep South, experiences a disproportionate burden of HIV.1 This report also describes STI prevalence, insurance coverage, linkage to HIV care, and PrEP utilization throughout the U.S.
