NACCHO and CDC Seeking Information on Congenital Syphilis Prevention & Control Efforts

Feb 22, 2021 | Shalesha Majors

NACCHO, in conjunction with CDC, is collecting information on congenital syphilis prevention and control interventions/activities in your county/city. This information collection effort focuses on any interventions/activities across the entire spectrum of prevention of syphilis among persons with childbearing capacity and congenital syphilis, as well as information on your syphilis screening/testing efforts of persons with childbearing capacity at your local jail(s). A compendium of responses will be developed and made available to local, state, and federal STD programs to increase peer-to-peer collaboration and improve congenital syphilis prevention efforts.

Congenital syphilis (CS) is a disease that occurs when a pregnant person with syphilis passes the infection on to the fetus during pregnancy. In 2018, there were a total of 1,306 reported cases of congenital syphilis, including 78 syphilitic stillbirths and 16 infant deaths. The national rate of 33.1 cases per 100,000 live births represents a 40% increase relative to 2017 and a 185% increase relative to 2014.

You can enter information on interventions/activities that were pre-COVID or current, and you can enter information on more than one intervention/activity, regardless of whether the intervention/activity has been evaluated. If you are not the right person to fill out info on your CS efforts, please forward this info to the correct person. The form can be accessed here.

For more information, and if you have questions, contact Shalesha Majors, Program Analyst, HIV, STI, & Viral Hepatitis, at smajors@naccho.org.
