    During the first half of 2005, the Syphilis Elimination Effort (SEE) team from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) undertook a series of site visits to a number of state and local STD programs in order to observe local syphilis elimination activities. Termed the “Syphilis Elimination Listening Tour”, the visits also provided an opportunity for the SEE team to obtain stakeholder feedback on the future directions of the SEE. The site visits were organized in consultation with the Program Development and Support Branch, Division of STD Prevention.

    The Listening Tour visits were part of a wider strategy of external stakeholder consultation which includes: Key informant interviews with state and local STD program staff; interviews with STD program directors and local SEE coordinators; and a national consultation meeting to be hosted by the DSTDP in August 2005. This document outlines the objectives, methods and outcomes of the 2005 Syphilis Elimination Listening Tour.

    Report prepared by: Jo A. Valentine, and Kevin A. Fenton.
