According to the Healthy People 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates approximately 20 million new STD infections each year (Healthy People 2020). The cost of STDs to the U.S. health care system is estimated to be as much as $16 billion annually. Many cases of STDs go undiagnosed such as human papillomavirus (HPV) and genital herpes and not reported to CDC. Moreover, the CDC estimates that undiagnosed and untreated STDs cause at least 24,000 women in the United States each year to become infertile (CDC, 2015). During 2013–2017, the national annual rate of reported primary and secondary syphilis cases in t the United States increased 72.7%, from 5.5 to 9.5 cases per 100,000 population (CDC,2015). In Texas, per 100,000 cases approximately 20% of the cases reported were of persons infected with syphilis. The highest percentage were African american, second highest were Hispanic and the third were White.
