(introduction...)

The syndromic approach to STD case management includes a comprehensive public health approach to patient care. In addition to diagnosis and treatment, comprehensive case management includes partner treatment, health education, and condom education, promotion and distribution. To remind health care workers of these aspects of case management, short messages could be added to the flowchart as shown in Figure 8.
