Facts & Figures

North Carolina HIV/AIDS, STDs, and Viral Hepatitis B and C

What We Do

The HIV/STD/Hepatitis Surveillance Unit analyzes sexually transmitted disease (STD) data and creates reports to inform public health officials, health departments, health providers, and the public about the current status of HIV/AIDS, bacterial STDs (syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia), and viral hepatitis B and C in North Carolina.

All individually identifying information reported to the Division of Public Health is confidential and protected by law. Surveillance information is shared routinely and voluntarily with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health partners and practitioners throughout the state in a manner compliant with HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act).

Please note that we changed our data release policy and are now releasing case counts that are under 5 if the population denominator is more than 500.
