STD Surveillance Network (SSuN)

Grant Amount: Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding: $6,000,000; Approximate Total Project Period Funding: $30,000,000.

The STD Surveillance Network is a five-year Cooperative Agreement that will fund a network of eligible state, county, city or tribal health department STD and/or HIV surveillance and/or prevention programs to implement enhanced and sentinel surveillance projects addressing STD surveillance problems of national, state, and local interest. These include the lack of complete information on the race and Hispanic ethnicity, gender of sex partners, other essential epidemiologic and health care information on persons diagnosed with STDs, and a lack of information on the population coverage of recommended STD screenings in selected clinical settings.

The activities described in this FOA are designed to generate new data that will address longstanding gaps and issues in national STD surveillance. Additionally, this FOA will fund innovative and robust collaborations with private and public healthcare partners and model technological approaches to integrated STD surveillance that make sustainable use of advances in electronic health data. Awardees successfully conducting both Part A and Part B activities described in this FOA will significantly enhance core capacity for STD surveillance in the United States and better meet CDC’s overall surveillance mandate by serving as ‘Centers of Excellence for STD Surveillance’.

The purpose of Part A activities is to sustainably enhance and improve STD surveillance data available to inform a more comprehensive understanding of trends and determinants of STDs of interest, monitor public health program impact and provide a more robust evidence base for directing public health action. STDs of interest are broadly defined as the nationally notifiable STDs including chlamydial infection, gonorrhea, syphilis, congenital syphilis and chancroid. Additionally, non-reportable bacterial and viral STDs are also of interest where network resources allow.

The purpose of Part B is to provide support to build sustainable technical capacity in selected project areas to pilot and evaluate projects that make full and meaningful use of innovations in health information technology to collect data to enhance the quality of STD surveillance and services evaluation activities.
