What is the overall goal of this strategic approach?

The primary objective of this surveillance system is to monitor recent infections among newly diagnosed PLHIV and identify, in real-time, geographic areas with high probability of recent transmission. Identification and investigation of potential recent transmissions will enable the public health response to be efficient and targeted to those at highest risk of transmitting and acquiring HIV infection. At the population-level, data from the surveillance system will be used to monitor trends in recent infection among newly diagnosed PLHIV by person, place, and time to inform epidemic control efforts.
