The guidelines for managing sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in primary care in New Zealand provide in-depth information on different STIs, including symptoms and treatments. These guidelines aim to achieve positive outcomes by promoting a culturally safe approach in healthcare delivery.

The website covers a wide range of STIs, ensuring comprehensive coverage and understanding. It offers detailed insights into the symptoms and appropriate treatments for each condition. By adhering to these guidelines, healthcare practitioners can foster a culturally safe environment that promotes equitable healthcare.

These guidelines prioritise inclusivity, recognising the importance of addressing the diverse needs of patients irrespective of their sexuality, gender identity, or expression. Recommendations consider the specific requirements of transgender and non-binary individuals while acknowledging the significance of gender identity alongside anatomical considerations. In addition, the guidelines are supported by a Māori sexual health framework that is committed to improving health outcomes and achieving health equity.

Produced by ASHM and the New Zealand Sexual Health Society, these guidelines provide an invaluable resource for healthcare practitioners involved in primary care STI management. By following these standards, professionals can ensure effective and culturally sensitive healthcare delivery.
