National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention

The National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) is a part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and is responsible for public health surveillance, prevention research, and programs to prevent and control human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), viral hepatitis, and tuberculosis (TB). Center staff work in collaboration with governmental and nongovernmental partners at community, State, national, and international levels, applying well-integrated multidisciplinary programs of research, surveillance, technical assistance, and evaluation.[1]

In November 2005, Dr. Kevin Fenton, M.D., Ph.D., FFPH was named director of this center.[1]

In March 2007, the center was renamed to the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) from the National Center for HIV, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHSTP) to reflect the addition of CDC's Viral Hepatitis program.[1]
