Epidemiology and control of sexually transmitted diseases in developing countries.Sex Transm Dis. 1994 Mar-Apr; 21(2 Suppl):S45-50.ST
The knowledge of the epidemiology of STD in the developing world had increased considerably during the last decade. This better understanding combined with the emergence of the epidemic of a new fatal STD (HIV) encouraged health planners to define appropriate effective and feasible STD control strategies. Major progress has been made with regard to the primary prevention and optimal case management of STD, both in terms of strategies and feasibility of implementation in field conditions.
