Slide 73

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 C’s 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.
