Global strategy for the prevention and control of sexually transmitted infections: 2006 - 2015
Breaking the chain of transmission
The Global strategy has two components: technical and advocacy. The technical content of the strategy deals with methods to promote healthy sexual behaviour, protective barrier methods, effective and accessible care for STIs, and the upgrading of monitoring and evaluation of STI control programmes. Emphasis is placed on a public health approach based on sound scientific evidence and cost—effectiveness. A section on advocacy offers advice to programme managers on approaches to mobilizing the high-level political commitment that forms the essential foundation for an accelerated response.
