Progress report of the implementation of the global strategy for prevention and control of sexually transmitted infections: 2006–2015
Document for the World Health Assembly
Nine years ago, in May 2006, the World Health Assembly unanimously approved and endorsed the Global Strategy for the Prevention and Control of Sexually Transmitted Infections, 2006–2015 (resolution WHA59.19). The Global Strategy was developed to provide a framework to guide the response for the prevention and control of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and to support advocacy efforts for programmes providing STI prevention and control services. As the period covered by that Global STI Strategy draws to a close, the World Health Organization (WHO) has compiled a comprehensive report on the implementation of the strategy for the World Health Assembly.
