    "With 358,366 gonorrhea cases reported in 2006, 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-1970s. After 1997 gonorrhea rates appeared to plateau. However, these rates have increased for the second consecutive year to 120.9 cases per 100,000 persons in 2006 which is a 5.5% increase since 2005. Additionally, gonorrhea rates among women and men have been relatively similar for the past ten years. Overall, in 2006 the rate of gonorrhea has increased in all regions of the country except the Northeast, among all race/ethnic groups except Asian/Pacific Islanders, and among adolescents and young adults. 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.
