Summary

'The Pan-Canadian STBBI (sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections) Framework for Action sets out an overarching and comprehensive approach that will support and contribute to achieving global STBBI targets. The Pan-Canadian STBBI Framework for Action provides a vision, strategic goals, and guiding principles to support cohesive action to address STBBI in Canada across all sectors with an emphasis on four pillars: prevention, testing, initiation of care and treatment, and ongoing care and support. The Pan-Canadian STBBI Framework for Action also identifies key opportunities for action related to each pillar and acknowledges the foundational support provided by increased surveillance, research, knowledge mobilization, and regular monitoring and evaluation to the success of any policy, program, or intervention to address STBBI'--Purpose, p. 2.
