Sexually Transmitted Disease Services

This report updates the 2010 CDC Treatment Guidelines for people who have or are at risk for STDs. Updates include alternative treatment options for gonorrhea and genital warts; updated HPV vaccine recommendations and counseling messages; recommendations related to care for transgender clients; and annual testing for hepatitis C in persons with HIV infection, among others. These recommendations should be regarded as a source of clinical guidance rather than prescriptive standards; health-care providers should always consider the clinical circumstances of each person in the context of local disease prevalence.
