Surveillance Summaries

  • Disparities in Preconception Health Indicators — Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, 2013–2015, and Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System, 2013–2014

    January 19, 2018
    Preconception health is a broad term that encompasses the overall health of nonpregnant women during their reproductive years (defined here as aged 18–44 years). Improvement of both birth outcomes and the woman’s health occurs when preconception health is optimized. Improving preconception health before and between pregnancies is critical for reducing maternal and infant mortality and pregnancy-related complications. Eliminating disparities in preconception health can potentially reduce disparities in two of the leading causes of death in early and middle adulthood (i.e., heart disease and diabetes). Collectively, the preconception health indicators provide a snapshot of the health status among U.S. women aged 18–44, which can be used as a baseline against which to evaluate state efforts to improve health in these women. These results suggest the need to enhance existing collaborations and identify new opportunities for addressing the health needs of women of reproductive age to improve racial and geographic disparities.

Recommendations and Reports

  • Prevention of Hepatitis B Virus Infection in the United States: Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices

    January 12, 2018
    This report updates and summarizes previously published recommendations from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and CDC regarding the prevention of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in the United States. These recommendations also provide CDC guidance for postexposure prophylaxis following occupational and other exposures. This report also briefly summarizes previously published American Association for the Study of Liver Disease guidelines for maternal antiviral therapy to reduce perinatal HBV transmission.

Notifiable Diseases

  • Summary of Notifiable Infectious Diseases and Conditions — United States, 2015

    August 11, 2017
    Health care providers in the United States are required to report certain infectious diseases to a specified state or local authority. A disease is designated as notifiable if timely information about individual cases is considered necessary for prevention and control of the disease. Each year, CDC publishes a summary of the cases of notifiable disease reported for the most recent year for which data is available. This report presents a summary of notifiable diseases for 2015.

  • Summary of Notifiable Noninfectious Conditions and Disease Outbreaks: Surveillance Data Published Between April 1, 2016 and January 31, 2017 — United States

    August 11, 2017
    The Summary of Notifiable Noninfectious Conditions and Disease Outbreaks: Surveillance Data Published Between April 1, 2016 and January 31, 2017 — United States contains official statistics for nationally notifiable noninfectious conditions and disease outbreaks. The Summary includes a synopsis of major findings from published surveillance reports for nationally notifiable noninfectious conditions and disease outbreaks, internet links to the complete published surveillance reports, and links to data and tables displaying current and historical descriptive statistics for each condition.
