Abstract: Recognizing the urgent need for a response by the international community to the alarming rise in sexually transmitted diseases (STD) in the countries of eastern Europe and central Asia, the Regional Office and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) organized a meeting of representatives of international and bilateral organizations. The aim of the meeting was to develop and strengthen concerted international efforts in supporting capacity-building in the secondary prevention of STD in the affected countries, which would complement efforts made in the primary prevention of STD and HIV infection. The participants exchanged information on the current STD situation and on the activities of the organizations represented, identified current needs and gaps in international assistance, and developed a joint strategic approach. They agreed to prepare for the establishment of a task force for urgent response to the STD epidemics in eastern Europe, and designated the WHO Regional Office for Europe as focal point for the task force
