*HIV Care Outcomes Among Men Who Have Sex With Men With Diagnosed HIV Infection United States, 2015*

""

"HIV care outcomes improved among men who have sex with men (MSM) in recent years." CDC researchers analyzed HIV surveillance data from 37 states and Washington, D.C., to determine care outcomes among MSM in 2014 and 2015. Compared with earlier findings for 2010 based on data from 18 states and Washington D.C., HIV care outcomes have improved for MSM. Eighty-four percent of MSM with HIV diagnosed in 2015 were linked to care within three months of diagnosis, compared with 78 percent in 2010. Fifty-eight percent of all MSM living with diagnosed HIV infection were retained in care and 61 percent were virally suppressed in 2014, compared with 51 percent retained in care and 42 percent virally suppressed previously. HIV testing is the gateway to care for people who receive a diagnosis of HIV infection and, along with risk assessment, the gateway to pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for those who test negative.

*Opioid Overdose Outbreak West Virginia, August 2016*

""

"Collaborative public health and public safety investigation of opioid overdose outbreaks provides agencies with essential information to improve healthcare and public safety interventions. Effective intervention might improve patient outcomes in battling the opioid epidemic." An investigation into a widely publicized 2016 opioid overdose outbreak in Huntington, West Virginia, found emergence of carfentanil and furanyl fentanyl in the illicit opioid supply in the community, highlighting the importance of improved surveillance and investigation of such outbreaks. The investigation has also identified opportunities to improve local health care facility and health department responses to the opioid epidemic by linking emergency care for opioid overdose patients to treatment for opioid use disorder.
