The objective of this document is to outline the policies and principles for the prevention and care of sexually transmitted disease (STD) to assist Ministry of Health officials who have the responsibility of developing and implementing STD programmes. Although the document is not intended to be a detailed description of activities that may be used in implementation, some areas have been amplified in annexes to serve as models that can be adapted to suit local situations.
