The guidelines outline the diagnosis of a number of sexual transmitted infections (STIs) including public lice, syphilis and genital warts. The guidelines advocate STI screening at every visit for people aged 15 to 49 years of age regardless of symptoms. Screening questions should cover the presence of genital discharge or ulcers and whether partners have been treated for STIs in the last eight weeks. The document then outlines treatment protocols for various STIs including lower abdominal pain, male urethritis syndrome and scrotal swelling.
