The mission of the Division of STD Prevention (DSTDP) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is to provide

national leadership, research, policy development, and scientific information to help people live safer, healthier lives by

the prevention of STDs and their complications. This mission is accomplished by assisting health departments,

healthcare providers and non-government organizations (NGO) through the provision of timely science-based

information and by clearly interpreting such information to the general public and policy makers. The Division’s specific

disease prevention goals are contextualized within the broader framework of the social determinants of health, the

promotion of sexual health, and the primary prevention of sexually transmitted disease.
