Monitoring and Evaluation

A tool for strengthening STI surveillance at the country level

World Health Organization, April 2015

It is important to help countries to determine how to prioritize and support these critical surveillance activities through the development of simple and standardized reporting forms and operational tools. This assessment tool is intended to assist countries in conducting an STI surveillance assessment to identify how to best optimize and strengthen existing systems, monitor trends, and interpret data to improve STI control programmes. This assessment tool complements the recent WHO guidance on how to evaluate national HIV surveillance systems, which includes a brief mention of the key aspects of STI surveillance.
