Description:The National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepa- titis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) at
the Centers for Disease Control and Preven- tion (CDC) saves lives, protects people, and reduces health disparities by preventing HIV, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and tuberculosis (TB). The infectious diseases NCHHSTP focuses on share similar or overlapping 1) risk factors such as risky sexual activity and drug use; 2) disease interactions, such as HIV increasing risk for active TB and STD as biomarkers for HIV acquisition; and 3) at-risk populations—including some racial and ethnic minorities, men who have sex with men (MSM), adolescents, and injection drug users. These diseases also share similar social determinants, including poor access to health care, stigma, discrimination, incarceration, homelessness, and poverty.
