Annual report 2012
  • Alternative Title:
    NCHHSTP annual report 2012
  • Description:
    This is the sixth in our series of annual reports on NCHHSTP’s activities. It contains brief highlights of the center’s key goals and some of our noteworthy accomplishments from 2012. The epidemics of HIV and other STDs, viral hepatitis, and TB are large and complex, but we have made progress in the last year, including the following: Issuing recommendations that call for one-time routine testing of all Americans born during 1945–1965 for hepatitis C, as those in that age group are five times more likely to be infected with the hepatitis C virus; Publishing new guidelines for treatment of gonorrhea, in response to trends in laboratory data showing that the antibiotic cefexime is becoming less effective in treating gonorrhea; Continuing the Act Against AIDS campaign with launches of Let’s Stop HIV Together—a new HIV awareness and anti-stigma campaign featuring individuals with HIV who share their personal stories—and Take Charge, Take the Test, a new HIV testing campaign for African American women; Releasing the 2011 Youth Risk Behavior summary, which included data on the preva- lence of youth risk behaviors across the nation; Using innovative techniques to address TB disease in the United States, such as TB geno-typing—a laboratory-based genetic analysis of the bacteria which is useful in identifying TB outbreaks; Launching a web-based, interactive tool for accessing HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STD, and TB surveillance data—the NCHHSTP Atlas. The accomplishments highlighted are just some of the many strides NCHHSTP has made in championing public health and accelerating disease prevention and health protection activities to fight these diseases. These accomplishments would not be possible without our expert and exceptionally diverse staff of public health professionals, along with the collaboration of our many governmental, non-governmental, and private sector partners.
