Better Health Through Prevention

grade:

The NMC Data Portal focuses on sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and hepatitis, although there are many other infectious diseases. Nationally, STIs are on the rise and have been for several years. Behavioral and socioeconomic factors are associated with the spread of STIs. These factors include social norms and stigma surrounding sex, as well as access to care. Untreated gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia can lead to serious long-term health issues, such as infertility and increased odds of getting HIV. All these diseases are preventable and most of them are treatable, leaving room for Nevada to improve significantly.

2020 Target Methodology

The 2020 targets are based on the methodology used by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Healthy People 2020 initiative. In most cases the targets are calculated as a 10 percent improvement over the U.S. average from a base year, typically 2007-2008. In cases where national data from certain sources was not available or reliable, Nevada data was used as the baseline.
