Controlling STDs/HIV within dynamic refugee settings

An article by Paula Nersesian and Bill Brady in Refugee Participation Network 20 (Nov 1995). After briefly reviewing the factors that increase the risk of STIs and HIV in displaced populations, this article discusses how to tailor successful approaches to STI and HIV control to refugee settings. Emphasis is placed on addressing STI/HIV transmission in the initial stages of an emergency, using syndromic approaches to STI management, and building an adequate logistical system to procure, store, and distribute drugs. Mainly for emergency settings but some material is transferable.
