Theme B: Overview - Reducing the burden of undiagnosed STIs and BBVs

The overarching strategy of this theme is to develop and evaluate evidence-based STI/BBV interventions and diagnostic/laboratory tools to reach undiagnosed individuals.

The asymptomatic nature of some STI/BBVs means that a high proportion of affected people remain undiagnosed, resulting in possible onward transmission and increased risk of serious long-term outcomes. Young people, particularly young gender and sexual minorities (GSM), MSM, PWIDs, migrants, prisoners and homeless populations are key groups at high risk of undiagnosed STIs/BBVs.
