Data corrected 30/10/2013: A number of data errors were identified in the SOPHID tables released on 27/09/2013. National, Country, PHE Region, Centre and Prevention group tables have been corrected for HIV diagnosed person receiving HIV care. Data for HIV & AIDS New Diagnoses and Deaths remain unchanged. Please ensure that any previously downloaded data are replaced with the current version (30/10/2013).
Data updated 16/12/2013: The national HIV surveillance data tables have been updated to include four tables on late HIV diagnosis by exposure, ethnicity, age group and region of residence. The HARS slide set has also been updated to include four figures on late HIV diagnosis.
New HIV diagnoses, AIDS and Deaths are collected from laboratories, genito-urinary medicine clinics and other health care settings. Data relating to people living with a diagnosed HIV infection are collected from HIV outpatient clinics. Data relate to England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Scottish data collected by Health Protection Scotland (HPS) [external link] and paediatric data (children aged under 15) collected through the National Study of HIV in Pregnancy and Childhood (NSHPC) [external link] at the Institute of Child Health (ICH) and the Collaborative HIV Paediatric Study (CHIPS) [external link] are combined to create UK totals.
National HIV surveillance data:
HIV surveillance data are broken down by country and PHE Regions.
HIV surveillance data are broken down by PHE Centres.
Diagnosed prevalence (rates/1,000 population aged 15-59 years) in English Local Authorities is used to inform HIV testing policy. A diagnosed HIV prevalence greater than 2/1,000 indicates that HIV testing should be expanded outside of genito-urinary medicine settings.
HIV and STIs are not uniformly distributed in the UK population. Here we summarise surveillance data for populations that require targeted prevention.
Using a mathematical model, HIV surveillance and survey data are combined to provide estimates of the number of people living with diagnosed and undiagnosed HIV infection.
For more information please visit the MPES Model-Based Estimates of HIV Prevalence in the UK in 2010 page.
The HIV surveillance slide set provides a graphical summary and interpretive text for use in presentations. Please acknowledge the HIV and AIDS Reporting Section, PHE.
The profiles support the work of Local Authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups in monitoring the health of their population and the performance of local health systems and to inform prevention activities.
