Other Objectives

'''Healthy New Jersey 2020 Objective HIV-5''': Reduce the proportions of cases simultaneously diagnosed with HIV and AIDS to 21.3% for the total population, 18.3% among Whites, 21.3% among Blacks, and 24.0% among Hispanics.

How Are We Doing?

The Healthy New Jersey 2020 targets were achieved by all subpopulations before 2020, however the rate among Whites was above the target in 2020. More years of data are needed to determine if it was a one-time anomaly or a reversal of the trend.
