Reported STDs
at Unprecedented
High in the U.S.
Expanded prevention efforts needed in light of
increases, especially for those at greatest risk
Total combined cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and
syphilis reported in 2015 reached the highest number ever,
according to the annual Sexually Transmitted Disease
Surveillance Report released today by the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC).
There were more than 1.5 million chlamydia cases
reported (1,526,658), nearly 400,000 cases of gonorrhea
(395,216), and nearly 24,000 cases of primary and secondary
(P&S) syphilis (23,872) - the most infectious stages of the
disease. The largest increase in cases reported from 2014
to 2015 occurred in P&S syphilis (19 percent), followed
by gonorrhea (12.8 percent) and chlamydia (5.9 percent).
Chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis are the three most
commonly reported conditions in the nation and have reached
a record high level.
"We have reached a decisive moment for the nation," said
Dr. Jonathan Mermin, director of CDC's National Center
for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention.
