Pharyngeal Gonorrhea Test of Cure (TOC) Project

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) represents the nation’s nearly 3,000 local health departments (LHDs), which work to protect and improve the health of all people and all communities. NACCHO's HIV, STI, and Viral Hepatitis program aims to strengthen the capacity of LHDs to prevent, control, and manage HIV, STIs, and hepatitis in their communities. NACCHO supports these efforts by providing technical and capacity building assistance, developing and disseminating tools and resources, facilitating peer information exchange, and providing learning opportunities.

To galvanize local efforts to assess test of cure (TOC) for pharyngeal gonorrhea as a strategy to identify and prevent the spread of antimicrobial-resistant gonorrhea, NACCHO, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of STD Prevention (DSTDP), will fund four LHDs up to $100,000 to implement pharyngeal gonorrhea TOC. This implementation will provide essential information about the feasibility of implementing TOC for all pharyngeal gonorrhea cases in clinical practice. Findings will be shared broadly with STD programs across the country.
