Second National Sexually Transmissible Infections Strategy 2010 - 2013

1.2 Relationship to other strategies

Page last updated: July 2010

This strategy is one of a suite of five strategies aiming to reduce the transmission of STIs and BBVs in Australia, and the morbidity, mortality and personal and social impacts they cause. The five strategies which cover the period 2010 to 2013, include the:

  • Second National Sexually Transmissible Infections Strategy (this strategy)
  • Sixth National HIV Strategy
  • National Hepatitis B Strategy
  • Third National Hepatitis C Strategy
  • Third National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Blood Borne Viruses and Sexually Transmissible Infections Strategy.
While the first four strategies focus on individual infections, the fifth strategy focuses on the combined health impact these infections have on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia. Despite their specific focus, each strategy shares common structural elements. This is designed to support a coordinated effort across stakeholder groups and pinpoint common concerns. The shared structural elements are:
  • guiding principles (Chapter 4 in each strategy)
  • priority populations (Chapter 5)
  • or similar priority action areas (Chapter 6)
  • issues around surveillance, research and workforce development (later chapters in each strategy).
