      STDs are a substantial health challenge facing the United States. CDC estimates that nearly 20 million new sexually transmitted infections occur every year, accounting for almost $16 billion in health care costs annually.

However, the data presented in the 2016 STD Surveillance Report provide important insight into the scope, distribution, and trends in STD diagnoses in the country.
