CDC Releases Its Annual Report “Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance, 2014”

Nov 17, 2015 | Alyssa Kitlas

Today, the CDC released its annual report, “Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance, 2014.” The data are based on state and local STD case reports from a variety of private and public sources. In 2014, increases were seen in all three nationally reported STDs- chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis.

  • Chlamydia: There was an overall rate increase of 2.8% from 2013-2014 with 1,441,789 cases reported.
  • Gonorrhea: There was an overall rate increase of 5.1% from 2013 to 2014 with a total of 350,062 cases in 2014.
  • Syphilis: There was an overall rate increase of 15.1% with 19,999 cases reported.

Young people continue to bear the greatest burden of all three STDs and are most heavily affected by them. Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men remain disproportionately affected by syphilis and there is a continued need to better understand these most recent increases.

The Surveillance Report comes a week after the CDC released a Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, “Increase in Incidence of Congenital Syphilis- United States, 2012-2014.” There was a sharp increase, 27.5%, of congenital syphilis from 2013-2014 with a total of 458 cases in 2014.
