Division of STD Prevention (EIS 2021)

Goal:

The Division of STD Prevention aims to maximize the impact of sexually transmitted disease (STD) prevention through integrated programs, science, and policy to achieve healthy populations.

Objectives:

  • Lead the response to and delay the emergence of multidrug-resistant (MDR) gonorrhea in the United States
  • Develop evidence-based interventions to prevent congenital syphilis
  • Modernize STD surveillance through informatics and new opportunities in emerging health information technologies
  • Improve outbreak detection and response capacity
  • Decrease the STD burden and highlight the need for an integrated approach to STD and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention among men who have sex with men (MSM)
  • Decrease the STD burden and mitigate long-term health consequences associated with untreated STDs among sexually active youth and young adults
  • Prevent STD-related adverse pregnancy outcomes
