  • Description:
    Syphilis is a genital ulcerative disease that facilitates HIV transmission and if untreated during pregnancy may lead to fetal infection or perinatal death. In the United States syphilis surveillance is based on mandatory reporting from health care providers and laboratories to state and local health departments. Recommendations for national syphilis surveillance were developed by a group of invited experts who met in Atlanta on March 20-22, 2000. This consultation on “Recommendations for Public Health Surveillance of Syphilis in the United States” was cosponsored by CDC’s Division of STD Prevention (DSTD), National Center for HIV, STD and TB Prevention (NCHSTP); the National Coalition of STD Directors (NCSD); and the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE).
