CDC: 2015 STD Surveillance Report

Oct 19, 2016 | Kim Rodgers

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Division of STD Prevention just released its 2015 STD Surveillance Report, which presents statistics and trends for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in the United States through 2015. The report found that reported STDs are at an unprecedented high in the U.S; 2015 was the second year in a row in which increases were seen in chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis; and over 1.5 million cases of chlamydia were reported in 2015, the highest number of annual cases of any condition ever reported to CDC. Findings such as these will be critical to informing expanded STD prevention efforts and decreasing incidence and prevalence of STDs in the U.S.

Below is an outline of the report’s four sections and an overview of the content provided within each:

  • National Profile: Contains figures that provide an overview of STD morbidity in the U.S, along with text that identifies major findings and trends for selected STDs.
  • Special Focus Profiles: Contains figures and text that describe STDs in selected populations that are a focus of national and state prevention efforts.
  • Tables: Provides statistical information about STDs at county, metropolitan statistical area, regional, state, and national levels.
  • Appendix: Includes information about Healthy People 2020, STD objectives and progress toward meeting these objectives, STD surveillance case definitions, and how to interpret surveillance data used to produce this report.

View the full report and its accompanying materials online here. If you share the report on your social media networks, please use #STDReport to tag the posts.
