Abstract: The WHO Regional Office for Europe, in collaboration with the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), organized a meeting in May 1996 on the epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in eastern Europe. The present Workshop was convened to review progress in implementing the recommendations of that meeting as well as the problems encountered by countries, and to formulate further action to control the epidemic. It was attended by representatives of the six countries attending the meeting and of six other countries experiencing a major increase in syphilis. It was found that the implementation of the recommendations of the meeting varied between countries. There was agreement on the need to continue the process of reform of gen-eral STD services by basing them on principles of confidentiality and anonymity, abolishing obsolete arrangements for the management of STD patients and their contacts, offering ambulatory treatment with modern drugs, collaborating closely with nongovern-mental organizations, and providing accessible and affordable STD care for vulnerable groups. The participants also identified priorities in STD case management, and agreed to urge their national governments to accord the current epidemic of STDs the status of a national emergency
