HIV Diagnoses

The term HIV Diagnosis is defined as a diagnosis of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection regardless of the stage of disease (stage 0, 1, 2, 3 [AIDS], or unknown) and refers to all persons with a diagnosis of HIV infection. HIV is a condition caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The condition gradually destroys the immune system, which makes it harder for the body to fight infections. These data represent new diagnoses of HIV in Florida by year of diagnosis (HIV incidence).

  • Chart will display if there are at least three years of data.

  • Quartiles are calculated when data is available for at least 51 counties.

  • Population estimates are not available for persons whose county of residence is unknown. Given this, the denominator and associated rate are not available.

  • These data represent new diagnoses by year of diagnosis, as of 06/30/2023.

  • HIV data are updated each year from 1979 to the most recent reporting year to ensure a case has not been counted more than once. This update is necessary because duplicate cases may occur when persons with an HIV diagnosis move to a different county, state or country.

  • HIV data by Year of Diagnosis reflects any diagnosis meeting the CDC definition of HIV which includes all new diagnoses of HIV (regardless if AIDS at time of diagnosis) with no previous diagnosis of HIV anywhere else in the United States or its territories.

  • HIV and AIDS cases by year of diagnosis are NOT mutually exclusive and should NOT be added together.

  • Enhanced laboratory reporting (ELR) laws in 2006 and the expansion of ELR in 2007 led to an artificial peak in new diagnoses of HIV in 2008.

  • Rates are NOT available by Mode of Exposure

  • MMSC (formerly MSM) = Male-to-male Sexual Contact, IDU = Injection drug use, MMSC/IDU = Male-to-male Sexual Contact and Injection drug use, Hetero = Heterosexual Contact, Trans Sex Contact = Transgender Sexual Contact, Other = Other risk.

  • This is primary, quantitative data.

  • All population-based rates are calculated using July 1 Florida population estimates from the Florida Legislature, Office of Economic and Demographic Research.
