NCSD, in conjunction with the National Network of STD/HIV Prevention Training Centers (NNPTC), is pleased to share the CDC 2010 STD Treatment Guidelines Summary. This document serves as a quick, single national summary of the guidelines that were released by CDC last October. As healthcare reform unfolds, this summary will serve as a useful tool to clinicians and other community healthcare providers when working with patients in need of STD treatment and care. In the past, NCSD members have laminated these and made them readily available for use.
NCSD is also cognizant of the fact that many jurisdictions have already undertaken, or may choose to undertake, the development of a state- or locality-specific summary of STD treatment guidelines. Our colleagues at the (Part 1) STD/HIV Prevention Training Centers are at the ready to assist you in the development of adaptations. Click here for a chart of the 2011-2014 National Network of STD/HIV Prevention Training Centers US Coverage Areas with contact information. The PTCs are available as a useful asset for many things beyond the treatment guidelines summary and just as NCSD is exploring new collaborations with them, we hope this opportunity might create a similar situation for those interested in this new resource.
