Abstract

Surveillance of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV is undertaken byt he Health Protection Agency (HPA), but is usually presented in isolation from the variety of paublic health indicators which can help interpret these data. Deficits in surveillance data on sexually transmitted infections diagnosed and managed in primary care can present difficulties in the commissioning of services at local level. In this report, we attempt to bring together a range of routine data, and newly analysed data including estimates from primary care datasets, which we anticipate will assist public health professionals and commissioners in needs assessment and in the planning of services. The data presented here supplement and contextualise the routine surveillance data published by the Health Prtoection Agency, in its annual reports and in the quarterly Local Sexual Health Profiles provided to the region's NHS community.
