HIV Care Continuum

Step 1: Diagnosed with HIV. Step 2: Linked to care. Step 3: Engaged or retained in care. Step 4: Prescribed antiretroviral therapy. Step 5: Achieved viral suppression.

HIV Care Continuum, HIV.gov

The HIV care continuum is a representation of the extent to which individuals living with HIV are diagnosed, engaged in care and benefiting from antiretroviral therapy in terms of full viral suppression (undetectable lab values). The value of the continuum in managing the HIV epidemic is compelling: individuals engaged in care can manage HIV as a chronic condition and simultaneously reduce the risk of transmitting the virus to others.
