Syndromic management

Accurate STI diagnosis is often not feasible. WHO has developed a syndromic management approach based on the recognition of consistent groups of symptoms and signs (syndromes). The treatment recommended for each syndrome cures the majority of infections responsible for causing the syndrome. The table below shows the recommended plans of treatment for the common STI-associated syndromes where laboratory investigations are not available.

Syndrome

Men urethral discharge

Women cervicitis vaginal discharge

Men and women genital ulcers inguinal bubo
