Description

Sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and blood borne infections (BBIs) are a significant health problem in New South Wales. Early detection and treatment programs are recognised as an important component of STI and BBI strategies and have led to reductions in rates in some communities across Australia. This manual provides a framework for the planning, delivery and evaluation of early detection and treatment programs for STIs and BBIs within Aboriginal community settings. The manual is also a practical tool that can be used in a range of clinical settings which include Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services, specialist sexual health services, General Practice settings and other services which deliver sexual health programs.
