Australian STI Management Guidelines

The Australian STI Management Guidelines were developed under the aegis of ASHA and finalised in August 2014.

A Steering Committee chaired by A/Prof Richard Hillman and an Editorial Subcommittee chaired by Dr Chris Bourne oversaw the process, with ASHM staff coordinating the project.

The Steering Committee included representatives from ASHM, ASHA, Royal Australian College of Physicians; Chapter of Sexual Health Medicine (AChSHM), Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association (APNA), Sexual Health and Family Planning Australia (SH&FPA), Australian Indigenous Doctors’ Association (AIDA), Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), Australian College of Nurse Practitioners (ACNP) and the Australasian Society for Infectious Diseases (ASID), as well as individuals experienced in the development of STI guidelines.

The Australian STI Management Guidelines are an online resource for primary care health professionals and are strongly connected to all relevant existing local/state based guidelines and resources.

Over 60 clinical experts were involved in the writing and review of the Guidelines and we are particularly grateful for their contributions.
