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).
Monitoring new diagnoses of HIV can be used to target prevention and educational programs to affected populations.

Alachua County is in the third quartile for this measure. This means that relative to other counties in Florida, the situation occurs less often in about one half of the counties, and it occurs more often in about one quarter of the counties. The map illustrates county data by quartile. When fewer than 51 counties have data or zero values, no quartile map will be presented.Links: Healthy People 2030|Florida Health Resources
