Alberta sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections strategic framework 2018-2021

Description

This strategic framework is meant to guide Alberta Health Services and community agencies in their work to reduce the incidence of sexually-transmitted and blood-borne infections in the province. The main goal of the framework is to enhance the health and wellness of all Albertans by preventing, reducing the risk, minimizing the impact and diminishing the stigma of sexually-transmitted infections and blood-borne infections. It provides guiding principles for six key action areas: prevention, early detection and diagnosis, treatment, support and care, raising awareness and addressing stigma. The framework was created following discussions and work with more than 350 organizations during stakeholder engagements in the summer of 2016.
