The National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Reports have moved to the new AHRQ Data Tools site. After June 30, 2022, this web page will no longer be available.
The NHQDR quality measures specific to HIV and AIDS are compared to achievable benchmarks, which are derived from the top-performing States. Better performance of a State can mean higher or lower values of a measure, depending on the desired outcome. For example, low values are desirable for measures such as infant mortality, whereas high values are desirable for measures such as preventative screening. The categories of achievement have been standardized across the measure definitions so that:
|Measure||Estimate||Benchmark||Distance to Benchmark|
|Persons age 13 and over living with diagnosed HIV whose most recent viral load in the last 12 months was under 200 copies/mL||76.3||76.1||-0.3%|
|Persons age 13 and over living with diagnosed HIV who had at least two CD4 or viral load tests performed at least 3 months apart during the last year, among reporting jurisdictions||64.9||66.2||2.0%|
|Persons age 13 and over living with HIV who know their serostatus||85.4||91.9||7.1%|
|New HIV cases per 100,000 population age 13 and over||4.6||4.2||9.5%|
