A Nurse-Led STI Management Model for High Risk Groups

By Sema Sgaier | 25 Dec, 2011

The treatment and prevention of STIs among high-risk groups in resource poor settings can be challenging due to the shortage of doctors. Project ORCHID, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, provides HIV prevention services to IDUs, FSWs and MSM in the states of Manipur and Nagaland of India. ORCHID has tackled the human resource constraint by developing and implementing a nurse-led model of STI prevention and treatment. Details of this innovation can be found in the attached monograph and likely to provide important insight to other implementers facing similar challenges.
