In a letter dated November 26, 2007 and sent to the National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD) and others, the CDC reveals its plan to release the 2005 HIV incidence estimates "in the coming months."

The manuscript is currently under review and decisions about publication are forthcoming."

"We call on the CDC to immediately release its new findings, as it is widely believed that the new HIV incidence numbers will show a startling increase in reported infections, constituting a public health crisis," said Michael Weinstein, President of AIDS Healthcare Foundation. "The CDC is not an academic institution charged with collecting data to analyze for its own sake. It is a government body with an obligation to disseminate crucial information-such as a 50% increase in reported HIV cases-so that it may be used to protect the public health.
