Medical Monitoring Project (MMP)

The Medical Monitoring Project (MMP) is a surveillance system designed to learn more about the experiences and needs of people who are living with HIV. It is supported by several government agencies and conducted by state and local health departments along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

By collecting locally and nationally representative behavioral and medical record data from people living with HIV, MMP will help answer the following questions:

  • How many people living with HIV are getting care for HIV?
  • How easy is it to access care and use prevention and support services?
  • What are the met and unmet needs of people living with HIV?
  • How is treatment affecting people living with HIV?

To improve the usefulness of MMP data, in 2015 MMP was expanded to include people living with HIV who are not receiving medical care. This information can be used to guide policy and funding decisions aimed at increasing engagement in care and improving quality of care for people living with HIV throughout Texas and the United States.
