  • Description:
    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. Many cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis continue to go undiagnosed and unreported, and data on several additional STDs – such as human papillomavirus and herpes simplex virus, are not routinely reported to CDC. As a result, national surveillance data captures only a fraction of America’s STD burden. 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.

    This fact sheet summarizes data on chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis published in CDC’s annual report, Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance, 2016 (available at www.cdc.gov/std/stats). The data are based on state and local STD case reports from a variety of private and public sources.
