Denver Health's new NHBS website

Visit the new site

The National HIV Behavioral Surveillance (NHBS) system is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to monitor risk behaviors and access to HIV prevention services among three populations at risk for HIV:
  • Men who have sex with men (MSM)
  • Injection drug users (IDU)
  • Heterosexuals at increased risk for HIV (HET)
Denver is one of 20 sites across the United States collecting NHBS data. Locally, NHBS is known as REACH (Risk Education Aimed at Community Health). REACH data is used to guide prevention, and HIV counseling and testing services in the Denver Metro area. NHBS data also provides a behavioral context for trends seen in HIV surveillance throughout the United States.
