The overall aim of the project has been to assess the extent to which data on the frequency of occurence of STDs [Sexually transmitted diseases] might be useful in the monitoring and evaluation of AIDS prevention programmes. The objectives have been to answer the following questions: (a) Can measures of STD occurence be used as an outcome measure of AIDS/HIV preventive efforts ? In particular: -> which diseases might be useful ? -> in what ways could they be used ? (b) If measures of STD occurence can be used in this way, is existing surveillance data in Western Europe adequate for the purpose ? If not why not ? (c) What do data from existing STD surveillance systems tell us about the success or failure of AIDS prevention to date ? (d) What needs to be done in order taht STD surveillance data in the countries of Western Europe could be used for this purpose ? [Authors, p. 4]
