    "The 2006 Disease Profile brings together annual surveillance data for HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STD, and TB, reported separately by each Division within the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP). This is the first of a series of planned annual profiles. It is anticipated that this type of combined report will facilitate the identification of emerging, overlapping disease patterns and trends that will better define prevention priorities that warrant further study and focus. This edition also includes data to focus attention on health disparities among African-American men, a population disproportionately affected by many of the diseases within the purview of NCHHSTP. Future issues will address other populations known to be at increased risk for these diseases, including adolescents and women of reproductive age. Understanding HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB not only as individual threats, but also as diseases that together compromise health, will help inform the development of more effective programs that can improve the lives of those who are at greatest risk. The profile also represents a preliminary step toward the creation of a more unified, integrated approach to monitoring HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB at the national level. It is hoped that this effort will further a commitment by state and local health departments to ensure a more integrated approach at the community level. In addition, it is hoped that the efforts to integrate surveillance activities at all levels will facilitate and support integration in other areas, such as funding opportunities, program operations, and training, and ultimately foster a more comprehensive approach to prevention and control of these diseases throughout the United States." - p. 59
