Three STDs Reach All-Time Highs in the U.S., CDC Report Says

09 Octobre, 2019, 14:00 | Auteur: Yves Courtet
  • CDC researchers say the 2.5 million cases of syphilis gonorrhea and chlamydia reported in 2018 are an all-time high

Syphilis had the most dramatic spike over the 10-year period in terms of percentage; the 25,344 diagnoses represents a sharp rise of 265% from 2008, according to the report.

In 2018, the CDC received reports of almost 1.8 million cases of chlamydia, some 580,000 cases of gonorrhea and more than 115,000 cases of syphilis.

The CDC's annual STD prevention budget decreased in purchasing power by 40% from 2003 to 2018, according to data released by the National Coalition of STD Directors, an association of local health officials. "Our first line of defense is underfunded and overwhelmed, leaving Americans vulnerable to STD outbreaks, and that's exactly what we're seeing". We also call on HHS to ensure that its Federal Action Plan on STIs, announced earlier this year, is finalized and implemented urgently.

STDs can cause a number of serious health problems.

41 states reported 1,306 cases of congenital syphilis in 2018 which were mostly concentrated to 5 states: Arizona, California, Florida, Louisiana, and Texas.

"STDs have real health and human costs". "We want to make sure that these women are actually linked to treatment, and the treatment is documented so that we can prevent congenital syphilis". This is a heartbreaking symptom of our nation's STD crisis.

"STDs are preventable by practicing safe-sex, and many can be cured with antibiotics", said Acting State Public Health Officer Dr. Charity Dean.

Public-health advocates say policymakers are essentially asleep at the wheel as STDs creep up slowly and claim more lives.

"It's a tragic outcome of the STD epidemic", Torrone said.

With tax revenue low during the recession, states and municipalities were looking for programs to cut, Casalotti and others say, and in the late aughts, STD prevention seemed like a reasonable area for savings.

"We can not be shortsighted".

But after the recession ended, state and local funding for STD programs never came back.

If your health care provider has not screened you, Torrone said, ask whether you should be.
