Periodic presumptive treatment for sexually transmitted infections
Experience from the field and recommendations for research
This publication summarizes the deliberations of the technical consultation, which covered current knowledge on periodic presumptive treatment and experiences to date with interventions, including the conditions that seem to be the most favourable for such interventions to work well. Further research is clearly needed in this field – including research employing possible modelling with current field data. Recommendations for research, as well as guidelines for those carrying out programmes with periodic presumptive treatment, were formulated and are presented in the final section of this publication.
