For 30 years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has monitored antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea trends to help ensure that the recommended drug treatment for gonorrhea is working. The CDC reports that 30% of new gonorrhea infections each year are resistant to at least one drug. Indiana is one of eight states funded by the CDC’s Strengthening U.S. Response to Resistant Gonorrhea (SURRG) project to enhance domestic gonorrhea surveillance and infrastructure and build capacity for rapid detection and response to resistant gonorrhea.
With cases of gonorrhea increasing at both the state and national level and international concerns around antimicrobial resistance, please join us to discuss:
