Action Taken

An assessment of the MSDH syphilis program by CDC in 1999 was satisfactory, but CDC indicated it could be improved. Among the items suggested by CDC were to:

  • Increase surveillance;
  • Provide access to testing and treatment;
  • Implement a jail program to diagnosis and treat syphilis cases, and;
  • Identify areas as high morbidity areas to obtain financial support for staff/programs to combat syphilis.

Contributory factors leading to a decline

  • increases in funding as well as staffing
  • better testing
  • reporting and partner notification
  • collaboration between the community organizations resulting in an increase in community awareness and knowledge.
overall
Overall
  • This case study points out that with or without the existence of a disaster plan for epidemics, stumbling blocks such as funding, testing, reporting, notification, and surveillance can hinder even the best plans and policies.
