|Abstract||The main objective is to assist practitioners in managing men and women diagnosed with Trichomonas vaginalis. The stakeholders are members of the CEG and BASHH who have had the opportunity to comment on the guideline.|
This guideline offers recommendations on the diagnostic tests, treatment regimens and health promotion principles needed for the effective management of Trichomonas vaginalis, covering, the management of the initial presentation, as well as how to prevent transmission and future infection.
It is aimed primarily at people aged 16 years or older (see specific guidelines for those under 16) presenting to health care professionals, working in departments offering level 3 care in STI management (see national strategy) within the United Kingdom. However, the principles of the recommendations should be adopted across all levels (levels 1 and 2 may need to develop, where appropriate, local care pathways).
