Stomp Out Syphilis
The “Stomp Out Syphilis” campaign was originated by the Dallas/Fort Worth Syphilis Elimination Coalition in 2008. Since then, DSHS has worked with local health departments and community-based partners to extend the campaign to other areas of Texas, including Austin, Beaumont/Port Arthur, Texarkana and Tyler/Longview.
STD Awareness Campaign
The National Public Health Information Coalition (NPHIC) awarded a Bronze Award for excellence in Public Health Communication to the Bureau of HIV and STD Prevention's 1999 STD Awareness Media Campaign. The purpose of the campaign, developed by the Bureau in conjuction with Sherry Matthews Advocacy Marketing [Sherry Matthews] , is to increase awareness of STDs, particularly the asymptomatic nature of many STDs, and the need for testing among sexually active African American females in the 15-19 age range. The pilot campaign used TV, radio and billboards to bring STD awareness and prevention messages to African American adolescent girls in the Tyler/Longview market.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) selected this STD awareness media campaign as one of three examples to be showcased on CDCynergy [CDC]. CDCynergy is a CD-ROM-based educational tool intended to help public health professionals across the country in systematically designing health communication plans and health interventions within public health framework.
