WA STI Strategy – research, evaluation and surveillance

Monitor testing coverage for STIs

This will be achieved through:

  • continuing to promote effective and efficient STI data collection and analysis systems
  • maintaining and improving the reporting of STIs in children under the age of 14
  • maintaining effective and timely data collection and analysis systems at the state, regional and service level.

Evaluate health promotion, prevention, testing and treatment programs

This will be achieved through:

  • prioritising evaluation for all STI programs and activities across the sector to ensure effectiveness and sustainability
  • supporting partnerships across the sector for continued evaluation and sharing results.

Support research

Research will be supported across the relevant disciplines to inform the delivery of the strategy.

Supported research areas will include:

  • social
  • behavioural
  • epidemiological
  • clinical.

NGOs will also be supported to explore and evaluate innovative methods of STI testing in collaboration with research institutes.
