The Syndemic of HIV, Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) and Behavioral Health Disorders

STIs overall have increased by 7% from 2020, with more than 2.5 million cases reported in the United States during 2021.

Among pregnant women with syphilis, substance use is nearly twice as high among those with a congenital syphilis outcome than those without transmission. Disparities also exist in syphilis rates across racial and ethnic groups. For example, among American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) persons, the rate of new syphilis cases of nearly four times the rate of white persons in 2020. Syphilis is also increasing among gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men.
