HIV infection continues to exact a huge toll on individuals in the US, with 879,335 persons living with a diagnosed HIV infection. New York State represents 15% of the total of reported cases in the US, with New York City accounting for 75-80% of those. With Long Island and the Lower Hudson area represents another 8% of New York States cases. Since the mid-90s, antiretroviral treatment has led to dramatic changes in health outcomes for people living with HIV. Mounting evidence suggests that persons with a suppressed viral load rarely, if ever, transmit HIV to others. Thus, antiretroviral treatment and medical care long-term is essential.

After a mass casualty incident, a key concern is locating and assuring the safety of loved ones who may have been aﬀected and cannot be easily reached or located.
