Q: What are 5 recommendations on how to overcome STI's and HIV&AIDS on teenagers?
A: Early diagnosis and effective treatment of STIs is an essential component of STI control programmes. The traditional method for STI diagnosis has been through laboratory diagnosis of the aetiological agent. [ [ [ [ Whilst this is still the method of choice in many parts of the industrialised world, this approach is expensive both in terms of diagnostics, infrastructure, and maintenance.
Additionally, it often results in delays in diagnosis and treatment. Moreover, most health centres and dispensaries in non-industrialised countries do not have access to reliable laboratory facilities. Consequently, clinicians either need to refer their patients to specialist centres, resulting in further delays, or they attempt to make a presumptive clinical diagnosis through the identification of particular clinical features related to various agents. This method has often proven inaccurate or incomplete30. To address the limitations of both aetiological and clinical diagnosis in the management of STIs, particularly for patients who attend the first level of primary health care, the WHO has developed and advocated the syndromic management approach. STI-associated syndromes are easily identifiable groups of symptoms and clinical findings on which the healthcare providers can base their presumptive diagnosis. Management is simplified by the use of clinical flowcharts, and allows time in the consultation to provide simple education messages, discuss partner notification and promote condoms. Antimicrobial therapy is provided at once to cover the majority of pathogens presumed responsible for that syndrome, in that specific geographical area7. Syndromic management is simple and lends itself to use in a variety of outlets such as STI clinics, primary healthcare (PHC) facilities, pharmacies, family planning/maternal and child health (FP/MCH) services and private practitioners clinics. The sensitivity and specificity of the approach for the diagnosis and management of urethral discharge syndrome and genital ulcer syndrome in various settings have been very satisfactory. Other advantages include cost-effectiveness, diagnosis and treatment at first visit and increased patient satisfaction7. ] ]

User: Impacts on the teenagers on STI's and AIDS.

Weegy: Sexually transmitted diseases are not only a risk for the health, but they cause other problems as well. They can lead to low self self esteem and make the young people stay away from intimacy. It affects their social life and plans for their future.
