  • Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sent out a clinical advisory on an apparent increase in ocular syphilis in the United States.  According to the Advisory: “Since December 2014, at least 15 cases of ocular syphilis from California and Washington have been reported to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. At least five other states have suspect cases under investigation. The majority of cases have been among MSM with HIV; and a

  • Reproductive and sexual health morbidity in the United States continues to far exceed that of other developed nations. Calls for greater attention and new strategies to address this fact usually begin with a ceremonial nod to the numbers of associated adverse health outcomes (an estimated 50 000 new human immunodeficiency virus [HIV] infections, 20 million sexually transmitted infections [STIs], 3 million unintended pregnancies, and 1 million rapes annually).1 This morbidity has substan

But now we have new tests to screen for cervical cancer, plus updated guidelines that—for most women—mean routine screening is done every few years rather than annually. The changes are confusing not only to women but their healthcare providers, too. So to sort all this out, in this episode of our Sex+Health podcast we’re talking with Dr. Warner Huh, Division D

Message from the CDC STD Director, Dr. Gail Bolan

January 25, 2016   Dear Colleagues, Last year was, in short, the year of outbreaks and increases in reported STDs. Although Ebola unquestionably took center stage, CDC’s Division of STD Prevention (DSTDP) was at the frontlines when outbreaks of ocular syphilis, lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV), and HIV emerged throughout the country. The 2014 Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance Report showcased the troubling increases that were seen in all three national

The Crisis of Syphilis in America: A Blog from
NCSD's Bill Smith Coinciding with CDC Syphilis
Summit

Recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that for the first time in a decade, the three most common STDs reported to health departments – chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis – are all up.  Of critical concern is syphilis.  For the third year in a row, reported cases of primary and secondary syphilis – the stages where the infection is most likely to spread – have increased by double digits.  In 2012, syphilis increased by 11 percent, in 2013, by 10 percent, and in 2014, by a shocking 15 percent.
