CDC Resources: Drug-Resistant Gonorrhea

July 7, 2017

CDC has developed these new tools to assist in your efforts to make sure your communities are aware of the emerging threat of drug-resistant gonorrhea and to help them better understand the issue:

  • A  NEW video animation was developed to help raise awareness about drug-resistant gonorrhea. It illustrates gonorrhea’s history of overpowering almost every drug ever used to treat it, the current battles we face as the bacterium evolve, and the dangers of this common infection becoming untreatable.Please share with your memberships and those who seek to educate community leaders and others about this topic.

The 2015 Gonococcal Isolate Surveillance Project (GISP) Profiles are also now available. In addition to the national antimicrobial susceptibility results included in the 2015 STD Surveillance Report, the GISP Profiles provide a one-stop resource to assure you have the most up-to-date national and local CDC antimicrobial susceptibility data.
