In 2020, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released the STI National Strategic Plan. This ground breaking document is intended to “provide a roadmap for a broad range of stakeholders—including public health, health care, government, community-based organizations, educational institutions, researchers, private industry, and academia—to develop, enhance and expand STI prevention and care programs at the local, state, tribal and national levels over the next five years.”
The Sexually Transmitted Infections National Strategic Plan – PDF (STI Plan) (1.8 MB) sets a vision as well as goals, objectives, and strategies to respond to this STI epidemic. However progress on the STI Plan requires local stakeholders to work in partnership to decide which goal are most applicable to their region and apply strategies to meet those goals.
TPPP is fortunate to have a practicum student from Washington University in St. Louis who is gathering information on what local stakeholders think are the most important goals and objectives for the greater St. Louis region. If you provide STI prevention, testing or treatment services, you are invited to participate in the survey to assess local stakeholders’ organizational
goals and objectives and how they relate to the new STI Plan.
The survey will include STI goals and objectives-related questions, as well as some demographic information, and it takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. Your response will be kept confidential. The survey will be open through Tuesday, November 30th.
You can access the survey here.
Your participation in the survey provides valuable feedback to assist stakeholders in the St. Louis Region in the implementation of the STI Plan. Your responses will inform a comprehensive report that will be shared with survey participants, stakeholders and local leaders to improve the health of our community.
