PL4 Where Is STD Prevention in the Future of Public Health?

Public health plays a critical role in the health of our nation. As indicated in its mission, CDC is charged with leading the nation in creating expertise, information, and tools that people and communities need to protect their health. STD prevention has always been a core function of public health and of CDC's mission. 2010 priorities for CDC reflect critical needs for public health and STD prevention: strengthening surveillance and epidemiology; improving support for state and local public health, contributing to the improvement of health systems globally, developing and supporting policies that promote preventive health especially health reform, and prioritizing these public health interventions that have optimal impact on preventing death and disability. This session will focus on how STD prevention fits into the future of public health in these key priority areas. The session will specifically address existing STD prevention programs like syphilis control and chlamydia screening and ask how these programs fit into CDC's broader priorities.
