STDs & HIV

The US has the highest rates of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) among industrialized nations, and the CDC reports that rates have increased dramatically in recent years. Almost half of these infections are among adolescents and young adults aged 15-24. NFPRHA believes in addressing STD/HIV prevention through a framework that is positive, evidence-based, and public health-based.

NFPRHA's Work

NFPRHA works closely with federal and state coalition partners to secure funds for the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and Tuberculosis (TB) Prevention (NCHHSTP) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The division works to eliminate, prevent, and control disease, disability, and death caused by HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB. 

Housed within NCHHSTP, the Division of STD Prevention (DSTDP) assists state, territorial, and large city health departments across the country in providing direct delivery of STD-prevention and control services. In 1988, DSTDP and the Office of Population Affairs joined together to create the “Infertility Prevention Project” which funded chlamydia and gonorrhea screening and treatment services for low-income women attending family planning and STD clinics, including many NFPRHA members. A key goal of this project was to reduce the incidences of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), a disease that can result from untreated chlamydia and gonorrhea and can cause infertility in women.
