National HIV Behavioral Surveillance System: The primary purpose of the program is to monitor the HIV epidemic through an ongoing HIV behavioral surveillance system. This system will ascertain the prevalence of and trends in HIV risk behaviors and HIV infection among groups at high risk for HIV infection, and measure the prevalence of other relevant infections, such as hepatitis, when indicated. Information from the system will be used to develop and direct the evaluation of national and local HIV prevention services and programs. CDC's HIV Strategic Plan has determined that monitoring behaviors that place people at risk for HIV infection is a key element of an integrated surveillance system. Measures of behavior are necessary to quantify progress in the plan's objectives. Behavioral data also are essential for designing and evaluating prevention interventions. The plan states that studies of HIV prevalence and incidence in special populations, including populations at high risk for infection, are an important strategy to provide locally relevant data for prevention resource allocation. This announcement provides an opportunity to capitalize on experience recruiting at-risk individuals from non-health care community settings using scientifically sound methodologies to maintain an ongoing system for surveillance of behaviors and co-infections related to HIV acquisition.
