B9 STD Prevention Among Males: Innovations in Testing, Service Delivery and Education to Special Populations Among Title X Supported Agencies.

Background/Purpose:Despite high rates of STDs among high risk males, targeted prevention services for this group remains limited. Moreover, there is a dearth of evidence-based approaches for delivering appropriate testing and education services for males.

Objectives of Symposium:Provide examples of innovative approaches utilized by Title X agencies for delivering STD prevention and other reproductive health services that have been field tested and evaluated.

Implications for Programs, Policy, and/or Research:These innovations in service delivery can and should be incorporated and replicated in other settings to increase access to services by males. Further research on service delivery approaches for high risk males needs to be conducted.
