From record-high rates to mpox, the STI field dominated the news this year
December 22, 2022
The STI field played a starring role in the news media in 2022. While the news year started early with stories about test tube shortages and spiking congenital syphilis rates, the nation’s monkeypox (mpox) outbreak created an unprecedented opportunity to highlight the role the STI field plays in the nation’s health.
NCSD was proud to elevate the voices of clinicians and program staff, highlight data, advocate for important change, and shape stories that help people understand the epidemic of STIs in America. Added together, news stories featuring NCSD’s perspective landed in front of readers more than 21.5 billion times this year. That’s pretty mindblowing!
