This report summarizes 2011 guidelines or recommendations published by multiple agencies of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) for prevention and control of HIV , viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB for persons who use drugs illicitly. It also summarizes existing evidence of effectiveness for practices to support delivery of integrated prevention services.
This report focused on focus groups performed with black MSM enrolled in pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to determine their thoughts about condom use and STDs, with the goal of helping to inform the national conversation about condom and STD prevention messages that work for this population.
In light of resurgent STDs, and a public health imperative to respond to related epidemics such as HIV and opioids, this cooperative agreement proposes new approaches to community-based enhanced and sentinel surveillance integrating monitoring of STDs, HIV and behavioral data to identify opportunities and gaps in prevention and control efforts. Systematic, ongoing collection of patient-level information to monitor the occurrence of STDs is the foundation upon which STD control programs are based.
