Healthmatters - Preventing STIs
Telephone conference and Q&A session (dial-in details below)
Wednesday 21 August 2019, 1.45pm – 2.30pm
In 2018, there were 447,694 new diagnoses of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) made at sexual health services in England, a 5% increase since 2017. The rise in emerging and antimicrobial resistant STIs further exacerbates the scale of the problem. Prevention is central to achieving good sexual health outcomes and entails both changes that reduce the risk of poor sexual health outcomes, as well as activities that encourage healthy behaviours.
Teleconference: Wednesday 21 August 2019, 1.45pm – 2.30pm
Yvonne Doyle, Director of Health Protection and Medical Director at Public Health England, will chair the teleconference and be joined by a panel of experts in this topic area.
