National Communicable Disease Outbreak Management Sub-Committee

Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) guidelines development group, a subgroup of the Outbreak Subcommittee

The Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) guidelines development group, a subgroup of the HPSC Outbreak Subcommittee of the HPSC Scientific Advisory Committee, is developing a guideline on the management of outbreaks of sexually transmitted infections. The guidance is intended to form an appendix to the overall outbreak guidance document, which is currently in development. It can also be used as a standalone document.

Stakeholders are now invited to comment on the provisional guideline recommendations, using the proforma below.

We would ask you to consider:

  • the generic descriptions of the roles and responsibilities of members of the Outbreak Control Team in Section 5, page 6
  • points or areas that are not covered, but which appear to fall within the scope of the guideline
  • potential inconsistencies or any disagreement with your interpretation of the evidence
  • the practical value of the provisional guideline recommendations
