The Lens 2.0: HIV Prevalence and COVID-19 Vulnerabilities
The Lens: HIV Prevalence and COVID-19 Vulnerabilities data-mapping tool 2.0 (Lens 2.0) is a partial response to an urgent need to understand whether elevated risk of COVID-19 disease and mortality among persons living with HIV (PLWH) results from related risk behaviors, a higher burden of comorbidities, and/or social determinants of health. This tool can help decision-makers, community-based organizations, and other stakeholders to access critical neighborhood-level information about the intersection of socio-economic and health vulnerabilities and HIV. The Lens portal also contains information on COVID-19 case rates for counties where such information is available.
