The CDC family of Surveys is a national serologic surveillance system set up to characterize the extent of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in the United States.
The now Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and participating State and local health departments began the system in 1987.
HIV seroprevalence data are collected by unlinked (anonymous) surveys of particular components of the population that include childbearing women; clients of sexually transmitted disease clinics; injecting drug users; tuberculosis patients; and several special populations, such as adoslescents, prisoners, and homeless persons.
