The Alaska Native Epidemiology Center (ANEC) established a new data use agreement with CDC’s National Center for HIV, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention. The agreement facilitates the transmission of data previously unavailable to the EpiCenter: line-level STI data for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis (by stage), and congenital syphilis.
These data will allow the EpiCenter to report on STI incidence rates among Alaska Native people for purposes of public health surveillance and program support for our Tribal Health Organization partners.
These activities were supported in part by the Tribal Epidemiology Centers Public Health Infrastructure program funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Chronic Disease and Prevention and Health Promotion, Healthy Tribes Program.
