Follow the Development of the STI Federal Action Plan

Jun 20, 2019 | Kim Rodgers

The alarmingly high rate of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the U.S. is a threat to the health of all Americans. To address this public health concern, the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health through its Office of Infectious Disease and HIV/AIDS Policy is working with federal partners throughout HHS and other federal agencies to create the nation’s first federal action plan on STIs.

The development process for the action plan is a collaborative effort and will seek input from subject matter experts; nonfederal partners and stakeholders, including health care providers and systems; state, tribal and local health departments; professional organizations; community-based organizations; researchers; advocates; and persons whose lives have been affected by these infections.

The plan will develop actionable strategies essential to increasing access to STI-related health services, removing barriers to care and treatment for priority populations most affected by STIs and improving monitoring and evaluation methods. The proposed release for the STI Federal Action Plan is 2020.
