    All Americans should have the opportunity to make choices that lead to health and wellness. An approach to improve health equity can address what the health providers can do with other partners working together. Interested committed public and private organizations, communities, and individuals can take action to prevent sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and their related health burdens. In addition to federal, state, and local public support for STD prevention, local community leaders can promote STD prevention education. Health providers can assess their patients’ risks and talk to them about testing. Parents can better educate their children about STDs and sexual health. Individuals can use condoms consistently and correctly, and openly discuss ways to protect their health with partners and providers. As noted in the Institute of Medicine report, The Hidden Epidemic: Confronting Sexually Transmitted Diseases, surveillance is a key component of all our efforts to prevent and control these diseases.

    This overview summarizes national surveillance data for 2013 on the three notifiable diseases for which there are federally funded control programs: chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. The data presented here by race and ethnicity are categorized according to the Office of Management and Budget standards. However, data for all jurisdictions by race/ethnicity using these categories are not available; consequently, absolute rates by race/ethnicity and comparisons among racial/ethnic groups may not match those provided in previous reports.
