Improving the Reach and Effectiveness of Local Public Health Systems in Preventing, Screening for and Treating Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Project Director(s)

Lynn Silver

The Alabama and California DIRECTIVE project seeks to understand which models are in use and how they affect the reach, effectiveness and cost of STD services, to identify ways to increase the value of STD services. The project is examining variation in the differentiation, integration and concentration of STD prevention, screening and treatment services in local public health systems as well as the extent to which these are associated with the quality of STD services and outcomes.
