Manitoba Sexually Transmitted and Blood-Borne Infections Strategy

Manitoba Sexually Transmitted And Blood-Borne Infections StrategyPreventing and managing sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBIs) continues to be a key public health priority in Manitoba.

Changes in STBBI trends in Manitoba over time contribute to an increasing burden to health and the health care system. The need for a comprehensive provincial strategy to co-ordinate programs and maximize the impact of various efforts is clear, with the ultimate goal being to prevent and properly manage STBBIs in the province.

In 2010, Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living, along with other key partners and stakeholders, began the collective process of developing the Manitoba Sexually Transmitted and Blood-Borne Infections Strategy for 2015-2019. The development of a new strategy builds on the foundation provided by the first Manitoba HIV/AIDS Strategy (developed in 1996), followed by a Sexually Transmitted Infection Strategy in 2001 and First Nations, Métis and Inuit HIV/AIDS Strategy in 2004.
