    • Description:
      Enhanced SSuN Cycle 3 (Version 8.2)

      The STD Surveillance Network (SSuN) was established in 2005 (Cycle 1) to create an ongoing network of collaborating health departments with the capacity to implement a wide variety of surveillance activities, the flexibility to modify activities over time as trends dictated, and the ability to use surveillance data to guide programmatic action.

      SSuN Cycle 2 (2008 – 2013) expanded the network to include a greater number of collaborating health departments and further strengthened the human capacity and IT infrastructure. Activities in Cycle II included monitoring the prevalence of STDs, HIV, viral hepatitis, and risk behaviors in MSM, assessing trends in the burden of genital wart disease in patients attending STD clinics, monitoring HIV testing coverage in patients attending STD clinics, and implementing population-based enhanced gonorrhea surveillance.

      The current cycle (Cycle III, SSuN 2013 - 2018) continues to address these issues through enhanced and sentinel STD surveillance activities in specific populations (population component) and in expanded healthcare facilities (STD Clinics and Family Planning/Reproductive Health settings) serving populations at risk for STDs. These activities constitute Part A of SSuN and are the core activities of the network; this document outlines protocols and methods for implementing these enhanced and sentinel surveillance activities.
