    "With 339,593 gonorrhea cases reported in 2005, gonorrhea is the second most frequently reported communicable disease in the United States. Gonorrhea rates in the United States declined 74.3% from 1975 through 1997 following the implementation of national gonorrhea control programs in the mid-1970's. After 1997 gonorrhea rates appeared to plateau, although a slight increase was observed in 2005. The current rate is 115.6 per 100,000 persons. Overall, in 2005 gonorrhea rates continue to remain high in the South, among African-Americans, and among adolescents and young adults of all racial and ethnic groups. The health impact of gonorrhea is largely related to its role as a major cause of pelvic inflammatory disease, which frequently leads to infertility or ectopic pregnancy. In addition, data suggest that gonorrhea facilitates HIV transmission." -- p. 1.
