HIV Prevention Through Early Detection and Treatment of Other Sexually Transmitted Diseases -- United States
Recommendations of the Advisory Committee for HIV and STD Prevention
July 31, 1998
Similarly, new behavioral and operational research is required to complement, facilitate, and enhance overall HIV prevention efforts because of increased emphasis on early STD detection and treatment. Examples include how to best provide HIV and STD prevention counseling when asymptomatic STDs are detected and how to improve HIV prevention referral systems and processes within the full range of STD detection and treatment facilities and settings (i.e., HIV counseling and testing centers, MCOs, and street outreach settings). Operations research also is needed to better understand how to organize STD prevention services to prevent HIV transmission. Additional research issues will arise as the initial program activities described previously are implemented.
