Tennessee: AIDSVu Releases New Maps That Depict Impact of HIV in Memphis
September 13, 2013
AIDSVu, an online tool created by Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health to illustrate U.S. HIV prevalence by location, recently released interactive mapping information for the HIV infection rate in Memphis, Tenn. The new information, released as part of AIDSVu's annual update on National HIV Testing Day in June, added Memphis to a list of 19 other cities with information available by ZIP code or census tract.
AIDSVu is a free online system that maps HIV prevalence in the United States at the national, state, and local levels. Demographic filters include race/ethnicity, sex, and age as well as HIV prevalence related to poverty, income, education, and lack of health insurance. The maps identify areas throughout the United States with the highest HIV rates, including metropolitan areas in the South and the Northeast, providing an easy-to-understand visual account of areas that need more prevention and testing and treatment services.View Full Article
