The Medical Monitoring Project (MMP) is an ongoing surveillance system that assesses behaviors and clinical characteristics of HIV-infected persons aged ≥18 years who have received outpatient medical care. The findings in this report indicate that most adults living with HIV who received medical care in 2009 were taking antiretroviral therapy, had CD4+ T-lymphocyte and HIV viral load testing at regular intervals, and had health insurance or other coverage. However, some patients did not receive clinical services and treatment in accordance with guidelines. Some patients engaged in behaviors, such as unprotected sex, that increase the risk for transmitting HIV to sex partners, and some used noninjection or injection drugs or both.
