National HIV Behavioral Surveillance (NHBS)  

San Diego Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) – National HIV Behavioral Surveillance (NHBS) System

The National HIV Behavioral Surveillance (NHBS) System is a national health survey that collects information on sexual risk, drug use, HIV testing behaviors, and HIV seroprevalence from populations at highest risk for HIV infection—Men who have sex with men (MSM), Injection Drug Users (IDU), and heterosexuals at higher risk for HIV infection (HET).  Since 2004 NHBS has collected data from one of these populations each year on a rotating basis (MSM, IDU, HET).  NHBS is designed, coordinated, and funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  The San Diego Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) is one of approximately 20 areas across the nation currently participating in NHBS, with data collection conducted by the California Department of Public Health, Office of AIDS and the Chicano Federation of San Diego County, Inc., in collaboration with the CDC.
