Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are infections that are passed from person to person through sexual contact. HIV is an STI. Globally, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that more than one million people get an STI every day. Our research programme aims to transform the delivery of sexual health services to improve access to key population groups with a higher risk of poor sexual health outcomes.
