What Does the HIV Epidemic Look Like in Your U.S. County?
Emory University Relaunches AIDSVu, a Web-Based Interactive Map That Shows HIV Data Along With Local Resources
July 9, 2013
Have you checked out the new AIDSVu? Presented by the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University (home to Kimberley Hagen, who taught the very first online course on AIDS), AIDSVu is an interactive, online map that illuminates HIV prevalence rates throughout the U.S. Though AIDSVu has been functional since 2011, only certain areas of the country -- like New York City or Washington, D.C. -- had zip code-level analysis available. On June 27, 2013, National HIV Testing Day, AIDSVu unveiled a new map with more complete data on its website.
How do you think it's best to use AIDSVu? Can AIDSVu help nonprofits and community-based organizations with their local and national work? Did your exploration of the map show you any surprises? Share your thoughts in the comments section of this article.
