This week, NCSD signed on a letter, authored by the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs, which supports the Title V Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Services Block Grant.Written to the Chair and Ranking Members of the House and Senate Labor, Health, and Human Services (LHHS) Appropriations Subcommittees, this letter “strongly urges” these Congressional leaders to support a minimum of $645 million for the MCH Services Block Grant in the fiscal year 2013 LHHS Appropriation bill.
NCSD has received multiple requests for information about sexual transmission of the Zika virus. We understand that several state and local STD programs are not included in discussions about Zika response, or about sexual transmission of cases.
April is just around the corner and that means, STD Awareness Month! To mark STD Awareness Month and raise our collective voices, NCSD has planned a number of activities that create opportunities for you to get engaged!
