Sexually transmitted diseases (STD) constitute a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, particularly in developing countries. Their public health importance draws from their complications which disproportionately affect women and newborns, their reproductive health consequences and the fact that they facilitate the transmission of HIV. However, all STDs are preventable and most can be cured. Effective STD case management is the cornerstone for STD control through breaking the chain of transmission from infected to non-infected persons.
The purpose of this course is to provide practical guidance to participants of operational level health workers who are expected to conduct STD case management in the health facilities. Its aim is to provide with skills to train clinicians in the syndromic management of STDs, provide counseling and community education about STDs. It also provides practical information to plan, execute and evaluate STD training. The knowledge gained in this training will aid participants to increase awareness on STDs
