What We Do

The HIV/STD Surveillance Unit analyzes sexually transmitted infection (STI) data and creates reports to inform public health officials, health departments, health providers, and the public about the current status of HIV/AIDS and other STIs in North Carolina.

All individually identifying information reported to the Division of Public Health is confidential and protected by law. Surveillance information is shared routinely and voluntarily with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health partners and practitioners throughout the state in a manner compliant with HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act).

Special Note: Our 2015 HIV/STD annual data are now available. All data tables and text highlights formerly published in the Profile, as well as several new tables, are available in the Annual Report. Charts, figures, and data on various populations are available as Fact Sheets and Slide Sets; some 2015 data is now available in these formats. Fact sheets and slide sets are updated over the course of the year.
