WHO recently released updated guidance on methods for STI surveillance and developed a road map to improving STI surveillance at the country, regional, and global levels. This baseline report is intended to explore what data are currently available globally online for analysis, in order to inform renewed efforts to strengthen STI surveillance.

The data presented in this report indicate that investments in STI surveillance are being made across the regions. A number of case studies, included here, illustrate how case report data have been used to guide revitalized primary prevention programmes and to demonstrate progress following improvements in STI services and primary prevention efforts.
