Abstract Indian Health Surveillance Report Sexually Transmitted Diseases 2009 presents statistics and trends for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) among American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) in the United States (U.S.). This report represents a unique collaboration and partnership between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Indian Health Service (IHS). Most of the AI/AN-speci fic data provided in this report are the result of a novel surveillance methodology, whereby existing nationally notifi able STD data reported to CDC were analyzed using standard IHS populations and methods. The Indian Health Surveillance ReportSexually Transmitted Diseases 2009 consists of two main parts: the National STD Pro file (1984-2009) contains text and figures that provide an overview of STD morbidity among AI/AN in the U.S.; the IHS Area STD Pro files (1998-2009) present STD rates and trends for the 12 IHS administrative areas.The surveillance methodology used in this report has served as a model and framework for analyzing AI/AN speci fic data for other nationally noti fiable diseases (e.g. hepatitis, tuberculosis) and for other priority health conditions (e.g. cancer, diabetes, mental health). Such reports are essential for increasing the accessibility and quality of AI/AN health data and play an important role in monitoring disease trends, identifying at-risk populations, and guiding interventions and resources.
