Management for Venereal Diseases

UNAIDS and WHO strongly recommend the adoption of the syndromic diagnosis and treatment of STDs. Syndromic case management is based on classifying the main causative agents giving rise to a particular clinical condition or syndrome, such as the syndrome of urethral discharge in men. It then uses flowcharts which help the health service provider reach a diagnosis and decide on treatment. The treatment covers all the important causes of the syndrome.

An industrial survey conducted by WHO/Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases in 2003 found that companies may spend as little as US$2000 or as much as US$2 000 000 on diagnostic trials of different products.
