Modern STD prevention and control requires dynamic approaches to assessment, assurance, and policy development in the face of consistent financial challenges and shifting disease priorities. This year’s theme highlights how these challenges can be transformed into opportunities for moving STD prevention forward. Through a program science lens, the 2016 STD Prevention Conference will focus on identifying and transforming barriers into prevention opportunities.
The 2016 STD Prevention Conference invites a diverse array of professionals, including program staff, scientists, clinicians, youth-serving professionals, and reproductive health care providers to come together and define the next generation of STD prevention and control. Join the CDC in creating new opportunities to maximize the health of our communities.
