HIV/AIDS Reporting and Statistics

Reporting HIV/AIDS cases is vitally important to efforts to characterize the epidemic in Kentucky, gather resources for the fight against HIV/AIDS and maximize limited resources by directing assets to areas where they are likely to have the greatest impact. Funding for HIV-related medical services and treatment is directly related to the number of cases reported.
