STD prevention programs can maximize their impact and outcomes by focusing their efforts on populations at increased risk. Despite good epidemiologic data describing heavily impacted populations, STD programs face several challenges in redirecting resources to high morbidity areas.
Objectives of Symposium:
This symposium will summarize the rationale and potential benefits of focusing efforts in areas of need and provide examples of strategies to redirect resources and prioritize activities.
Implications for Programs, Policy, and Research:
As public health funding and infrastructure decline over time, health departments need to use epidemiologic data to move resources and promote preventive services to serve the most impacted communities and maximize prevention outcomes.
