Optimising the use of the syndromic approach for sti management and prevention in resource poor settings

Objective

More efficient and effective health care systems in reproductive health care will be promoted through improvements of the use of the Syndromes Approach for STI management and prevention in resource poor settings with high STI and HIV incidence. Locally relevant systems that will optimise field performance of the Syndromes Approach for STI management, in particular for STI in women, will be obtained through reconsideration of existing tools and systems and this at different levels of the health delivery system. The acceptability of the Syndromes Approach for STI management for health providers and users will be improved through a concerted action in 4 Sub Saharan countries. Co-operation with scientists and policy makers from 4 European Institutions involved in health systems development and development of diagnostic tools will continue to enhance effectiveness, coverage and quality of existing primary health care services.
