The Don't Sleep On It syphilis awareness campaign was created in partnership with the Syphilis Elimination Advisory Council (SEAC), a community group with an interest in eliminating syphilis in Houston/Harris County.

Formed in 1999, the SEAC focuses on the identification of key strategies to eliminate syphilis from Texas communities. These strategies include increasing awareness of and mobilizing community involvement and resources in the elimination of syphilis, facilitating more effective communication regarding syphilis elimination, and identifying gaps in services and barriers to accessibility of services for at-risk individuals. Funded by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), SEAC maintains collaborative relationships with representatives of the communities most affected by syphilis and appropriate local groups
with the goal of eliminating syphilis from Texas communities.
