Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and blood-borne viruses (BBVs) are significant public health concerns in Western Australia, particularly in some areas and among some populations. As part of its continued response to this issue, the Western Australian Department of Health (WA Health) is continuously updating these clinical guidelines, aiming to promote the principles of best practice to the wide range of providers who are responsible for STI and BBV management in this State.

These guidelines are designed for all clinicians and health care providers involved in the diagnosis and/or management of STIs and BBVs in Western Australia.

They contain the most up-to-date evidence-based practice recommendations and are complemented with a range of patient and health professional resources.
