HIV/AIDS Surveillance Program
The HIV/AIDS Surveillance Program is instrumental in the systemic collection, compilation, analysis and dissemination of HIV/AIDS morbidity and mortality data to identify rates, trends and modes of transmission in Volusia and Flagler counties. This information is available to our community partners (public/private sector) for the planning and evaluating of prevention programs and patient care activities.
Epidemiological profiles, fact sheets, area slide sets, provider information, forms and more are online at the department's website.
In collaboration with our community partners, the Surveillance program facilitates the MaMa Bear Program to prevent the perinatal spread of HIV by ensuring the mother receives and remains compliant with medical care throughout her pregnancy. Program staff educate and monitor the mother on antiretroviral administration/medical care to interrupt transmission to her newborn.
