Data & Statistics
Through a collaborative between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and IHS, a specific STD Surveillance report was developed in an effort to improve awareness of health disparities among AI/AN while striving to increase funding, resources, and community-based participatory research to benefit Native communities.
The report, Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance, 2015 presents statistics and trends for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in the United States through 2015. This annual publication is intended as a reference document for policy makers, program managers, health planners, researchers, and others who are concerned with the public health implications of these diseases.
