Abstract
This report reviews data on the prevalence of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in Alaska, provides comparison with national data, and examines recent trends in AIDS cases. Since Alaska case numbers are relatively small, these data should be interpreted in the context of cumulative scientific knowledge about HIV/AIDS. National data cited are drawn from publications of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
