Congenital Syphilis (CS) Case Investigation and Report Form (CDC73.126)—OMB No. 0920-0128—Extension—National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Coordinating Center for Infectious Diseases (CCID), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
CDC proposes to continue data collection for congenital syphilis case investigations under the “Congenital Syphilis (CS) Case Investigation and Report Form” (CDC73.126, REV 10-2003). This form is currently approved under OMB No. 0920-0128, and is due to expire on 12/31/2006. This request is for a 3-year extension of OMB approval.
Reducing congenital syphilis is a national objective in the DHHS Report entitled Healthy People 2010 (Vol. I and II). Objective 25-9 of this document states the goal: “Reduce congenital syphilis to 1 new case per 100,000 live births”. In order to meet this national objective, an effective surveillance system for congenital syphilis must be continued to monitor current levels of disease and progress towards the year 2010 objective. This data will also be used to develop intervention strategies and to evaluate ongoing control efforts.
Respondent burden is approximately 15 minutes per response for those who provide data electronically and 30 minutes per response for those who provide data via hard copy. The estimated annual number of cases expected to be reported using the current case definition is approximately 500. There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. The total estimated annual burden hours are 160. Start Printed Page 75258
