  • Description:
    Syphilis Elimination (SE) activities are more likely to be successful when they are carefully planned, managed, and monitored. Evidence-based action planning is a strategy to assist the planning and management of syphilis prevention and control programs. The epidemiology of syphilis is always changing. SE programs must respond to changes in the epidemiology by directing efforts toward emerging at-risk populations. Furthermore, awareness of the costs and benefits of different interventions will help programs choose the most efficient intervention activities.

    An evidence-based action plan guides the collection of information on the target populations, interventions provided, resource allocated, and outcomes in order to facilitate program assessment, improve effectiveness, and inform decisions about future program development.1 2 Evidence-based action plans give credibility to the organization, ensure that all components of a local intervention are considered, ground interventions in reality, and improve efficiency and accountability.

    A number of state and local STD programs are moving toward a more evidence-based approach to syphilis prevention and control interventions. The purpose of this document is to provide guidance for the development of an SE Evidence-based Action Plan that will facilitate gathering information and tracking resources, and provide a framework for ongoing evaluation of syphilis interventions.
