Equity, Health and Well-Being

With the launch of the STI National Strategic Plan (STI Plan), the CDC Division of STD Prevention (Division) aims to reverse the dramatic rise in STIs in the United States by creating a roadmap for public health, government, community-based organizations, and other partners to develop, enhance, and expand STI prevention and care programs at the local, state, tribal, and national levels. As the Division implements the STI Plan, it conducted an assessment to reflect on lessons learned through the National Infertility Prevention Project (IPP). This practice paper outlines strategies aligning with the five goals and associated objectives in the STI Plan.
