    World Health Organization [WHO]. Regional Office for the Western Pacific

    Manila, Philippines, WHO, Regional Office for the Western Pacific, 1999. [37] p.

    This document explores issues related to the role public health policy serves in the prevention and control of sexually transmitted infections (STI). It is intended to help guide STI programme managers and other health professionals in the: evaluation of the adequacy of existing public health legislation and programme policies; assessment of areas where improvements should be considered; and the design of new legislation and/or policy instruments. The guide is divided into five parts. The introduction provides background information and explains the terminology used throughout the guide. The second section, general considerations, discusses a number of basic principles that should be considered in approaching public health policies. Operational considerations and specific STI policy issues are presented in section three. A few selected relevant publications are listed in section four. Examples of a national policy and strategies for STI prevention and control, and an outline of a technical guideline on STI partner referral are given as annexes. (excerpt)

    The purposes of this bibliography are to present an overview of the published literature on equity in health and to summarize key articles relevant to the mission of the International Society for Equity in Health (ISEqH). The intent is to show the directions being taken in health equity research including theories, methods, and interventions to understand the genesis of inequities and their remediation. Therefore, the bibliography includes articles from the health equity literature that focus on mechanisms by which inequities in health arise and approaches to reducing them where and when they exist.
