- Four Cs

- Screening and vaccination
We will now turn from discussing the syndromic management approach
to important concerns about STD management common to all approaches.
First, we discuss approaches to management of STDs among asymptomatic
women. We summarize the four Cs and major issues regarding
managing resources. We then have a brief discussion of HIV testing
and counseling, screening for syphilis and cervical cancer,
and vaccination for hepatitis B. We close with a summary of
preliminary steps that FP/MCH program managers should take when
considering adding STD management services.
