CDC Science Clips: Volume 12, Issue 12, April 14, 2020
Science Clips is produced weekly to enhance awareness of emerging scientific knowledge for the public health community. Each article features an Altmetric Attention scoreexternal icon to track social and mainstream media mentions!
This week’s Science Clips is pleased to feature articles on sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in conjunction with STD Awareness Week. Featured articles highlight recent research on STDs, including studies that identify the often severe consequences of STDs, including congenital syphilis and disseminated gonococcal infection, as well as strategies to prevent STDs and their consequences in populations most affected including men who have sex with men, women, and persons at risk for HIV.
STD Awareness Week, observed April 12-18, 2020, provides an opportunity to raise awareness about STDs and how they impact our lives; reduce STD-related stigma, fear, and discrimination; and ensure people have the tools and knowledge to prevent, test for, and treat STDs. Because local prevention needs vary with the communities, CDC has provided diverse campaigns to choose from with different prevention focuses and audiences:
- Get Yourself Tested (GYT) – Encourages young people to get tested and treated for STDs and HIV
- Talk. Test. Treat. – Focuses on three simple actions individuals and healthcare providers can take to protect their health/their patient’s health: Talk, Test, Treat
- Syphilis Strikes Back – Highlights the resurgence of syphilis and the specific threat against gay and bisexual men, pregnant women, and newborn babies
- Treat Me Right – Underscores the need for strong patient-provider relationships to overcome the rising STD burden
- Key Scientific Articles in Featured Topic
Subject matter experts decide what topic to feature, and articles are selected from the last 3 to 6 months of published literature. Key topic coincides monthly with other CDC products (e.g. Vital Signs).
