1.3. Case management

STI case management is the care of a person with an STI-related syndrome or with a positive test for one or more STI. The components of case management include: history taking, examination, correct diagnosis, early and effective treatment, advice on sexual behaviour, promotion and/or provision of condoms, partner notification and treatment, case reporting and clinical follow-up as appropriate. Thus, effective case management consists not only of antimicrobial therapy to obtain cure and reduce infectivity, but also comprehensive care of the patient's needs for reproductive health.
