Purpose

Public Health Nursing Case Management: Reducing Sexually Transmitted Infections provides grants to mitigate the prevalence of sexually transmitted infections (STI) within Indian Country through a case management model that utilizes public health nurses (PHNs) as case managers. The program supports efforts to:

  • Raise awareness of rising STI rates
  • Increase access to care
  • Strengthen surveillance systems to monitor STI trends
  • Promote linkage to care in follow-up and treatment to reduce the spread of STIs
  • Decrease serious health consequences of undiagnosed STIs.
  • Identify effective interventions for reducing morbidity
  • Improve outbreak response efforts

Applicants will first conduct a community health needs assessment to determine STI healthcare priorities in their community. They will then plan, implement, and evaluate program services.

  • Federally recognized tribes
