This new manual, Laboratory diagnosis of sexually transmitted infections, including human immunodeficiency virus , provides a basic understanding of the principles of laboratory tests in the context of screening and diagnostic approaches, as well as antimicrobial susceptibility testing, as components of STI control. As with the 1999 manual, this manual covers each disease in a separate chapter that provides detailed information on specimen collection, transport, and laboratory testing. Two useful annexes covering equipment, tests, media, reagents, and stains are included at the end of the manual.
