The mission of SDMB is to capture state-level STD morbidity data, assess STD burden and trends, and develop and conduct sentinel surveillance of STDs and STD adverse outcomes. These surveillance activities provide a foundation for the annual STD Surveillance Report.

The Branch also monitors and evaluates trends in implementation and adoption of health information technologies (HIT) and assesses the potential of health information exchanges and electronic health records as sources of notifiable disease reports.
