New CDC online atlas offers current STI data
Need the latest data on HIV, AIDS, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and primary and secondary syphilis? Check out the NCHHSTP Atlas, an interactive tool for accessing data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP).
The atlas was created to provide an interactive platform for accessing HIV, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted infection, and tuberculosis data collected by the CDC. The interactive tool provides CDC an effective way to disseminate data, and it allows users to creating detailed reports, maps, and other graphics to observe trends and patterns. For more information and a brief training video, visit the CDC web page, http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/atlas. Surveillance data on each disease will be updated annually.
The atlas provides interactive maps, graphs, tables, and figures showing geographic patterns and time trends of HIV, AIDS, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and primary and secondary syphilis surveillance data. Information on tuberculosis and viral hepatitis are slated to be included later in 2012.
