The Gonococcal Isolate Surveillance Project (GISP), a national sentinel surveillance system, was established in 1986 to monitor trends in antimicrobial susceptibilities of Neisseria gonorrhoeae strains in the United States among selected sexually transmitted diseases (STD) clinics in approximately 25-30 GISP sentinel sites.

Annual reports were published for the years 1998–2007. Starting in 2008, site-specific GISP profiles have been published online each year.

The following site-specific profiles consist of figures depicting the demographic and clinical data of the men with gonorrhea enrolled in GISP and the antimicrobial susceptibility results of the Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolates submitted.
