About the ABC of Sexually Transmitted Infections

Edited by Karen E Rogstad, Consultant Physician, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Sheffield, UK

With sexually transmitted infections (STIs) a major cause of morbidity and mortality throughout the world, the new edition of ABC of Sexually Transmitted Infections is a much–needed introduction and reference guide.

This sixth edition includes the latest guidance on the prevalence, prevention and treatment of STIs, screening programmes and new testing methods. It features new chapters on service modernisation and new care providers, high risk and special needs groups, systemic manifestations, and sexually transmitted
infections in resource–poor settings. Contraception is also covered, reflecting the increasing integration of STI and contraceptive services.

With an international authorship, the ABC of Sexually Transmitted Infections is ideal for those providing community–based STI diagnosis and management such as GPs, primary care physicians, pharmacists, contraceptive service providers, those in the voluntary sector, and those working in resource–poor settings. Junior doctors, medical students, and nurses working in community or specialist services will also find it a valuable resource as will those working in the fi elds of obstetrics and gynaecology and public health.
