Public health officials at many levels have altered program
designs and resource allocations to reflect a more strategic
approach to STD control.
Strategic approaches at a global, regional or national level
include AIDS and STD awareness campaigns.
Traditionally, STD control at the program level has been implemented
through STD clinics. However, STD services, particularly prevention
services, also can be provided by FP/MCH programs.
It is important that such programs implement interventions
for STDs that are appropriate to their setting. Factors affecting
the degree of implementation include local STD prevalence rates,
as well as the programs infrastructure, personnel and
ability to maintain supplies for the diagnosis and treatment
