CDC Resources on Drug-Resistant Gonorrhea

Jun 02, 2017 | Kim Rodgers

Concerning developments reported last year suggest that gonorrhea may be beginning to outsmart the last recommended treatment from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Keeping an eye on drug-resistant gonorrhea has never been more important.

These new CDC tools can assist in your efforts to make sure your communities are aware of the emerging threat of drug-resistant gonorrhea, and ultimately, help in the goal of ensuring their health and safety:

  • A NEW video animation was developed to raise awareness about the topic of drug-resistant gonorrhea. It illustrates gonorrhea’s history of overpowering almost every drug ever used to treat it, the current battles we face as the bacterium evolve, and the dangers of this common infection becoming untreatable.
  • The 2015 Gonococcal Isolate Surveillance Project (GISP) Profiles are now available. In addition to the national antimicrobial susceptibility results included in the 2015 STD Surveillance Report, the GISP Profiles provide a one-stop resource to assure you have the most up-to-date national and local CDC antimicrobial susceptibility data.

Bookmark CDC’s antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea page where you can find important updates as they become available.
