Medical Monitoring Project (MMP)

MMP Logo

The Medical Monitoring Project (MMP) is a public health initiative 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 receiving medical care for HIV?
  • How easy is it to access medical care, prevention, and support services?
  • What are the met and unmet needs of people living with HIV?
  • How is treatment affecting people living with HIV?

People sampled for MMP will be contacted by health department staff working for Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) thru mail and/or phone.

Why is MMP Important?

MMP is important because it provides information about the behaviors, medical care, and health status of people living with HIV.

MMP is unique in that it describes comprehensive clinical and behavioral information from people carefully sampled to represent everyone diagnosed with HIV in the United States. Because MMP's estimates are designed to be representative, information gathered from MMP may be used by prevention planning groups, policy leaders, health care providers, and people living with HIV to highlight disparities in care and services and advocate for needed resources.
