Public Health Reports: Using Public Health Policy to Reduce the Morbidity, Mortality, and Incidence of HIV, Viral Hepatitis, Sexually Transmitted Diseases, and Tuberculosis

Public Health Reports (PHR), the official journal of the office of the U.S. Surgeon General and the U.S. Public Health Service, has just released a special issue “Using Public Health Policy to Reduce the Morbidity, Mortality, and Incidence of HIV, Viral Hepatitis, Sexually Transmitted Diseases, and Tuberculosis.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) works for a future free of HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and tuberculosis (TB). Policy can have powerful effects on the complex, multisectoral factors that influence the population-level morbidity, mortality, and health disparities of these and other diseases.

The special issue’s guest editors are Drs. Deron C. Burton and Jonathan H. Mermin at the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention; and Dr. Hazel D. Dean, Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology, and Laboratory Services, CDC.
