Clinical Data and Research

The Clinical Data and Research Program (CDR) encompasses active and passive surveillance of adults, adolescents, perinatal exposure, and pediatric HIV and AIDS cases. CDR provides incidence, prevalence, and projections of HIV Disease in Indiana. It also coordinates the provision of data with the goal of enhancing integration, linkage, and program performance with programs throughout the state.

Core Surveillance & Incidence

HIV disease surveillance provides summary and analytical data for planning, implementing, or evaluating HIV prevention or services programs, and for education about the disease and how to prevent transmission. Data are routinely supplied throughout Indiana and other states, to state and national health care educators and providers, state and national legislators, HIV prevention and services programs, researchers, news media, students, and the public.

Case Reporting Forms

Incidence Program - Serologic Testing Algorithm for Recent HIV Seroconversions (STARHS)
STARHS may improve HIV counseling and testing. STARHS may tell if a person infected with HIV got the infection in the 6 months before he/she was tested. Knowing when a person was infected with HIV may help the person and his/her health care providers decide the best treatment.

Medical Monitoring Project (MMP)
This project is a surveillance project conducted by state or local health departments in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). It is designed to produce nationally representative data on persons living with HIV Disease that are receiving care in the United States.

Recalcitrant Program - Advocacy, Responsibility and Counseling (ARC)
This program accepts complaints from service providers and individuals that have sufficient knowledge of persons who fail to notify their partners of their HIV+ status prior to sex or sharing needles. The goal of this program is to ensure that the laws of Indiana are carried out in such a manner that both the public health and the rights of the HIV+ individuals are protected.
