Monitoring and estimates of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)
WHO periodically generates estimates to gauge the global burden of four of the most common curable sexually transmitted infections: chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, and syphilis.  The estimates provide evidence for program improvement, monitoring and evaluation.

Guidelines for the management of symptomatic sexually transmitted infections
The objectives of these guidelines are to provide updated, evidence-informed clinical and practical recommendations on the case management of people with symptoms of STIs; and to support countries in updating their national guidelines for the case management of people with symptoms of STIs. These guidelines include the management of symptomatic infections related to urethral discharge syndrome, including persistent urethral discharge syndrome; vaginal discharge syndrome, including persistent vaginal discharge; anorectal infection; genital ulcer disease syndrome; and lower abdominal pain syndrome.
