Other sexually transmitted infections, or STIs, play an important role in the transmission, or spread, of HIV. Educating your clients about other sexually transmitted infections, or STIs, and their link to HIV can help them take steps to protect themselves and others. During this training we will (1) review some important facts about HIV and other STIs and their treatment, and (2) discuss how you might counsel a client using this information. Because of the sensitive and personal nature of this topic, some of your clients may be reluctant, embarrassed, or ashamed to engage in a discussion about STIs. We will discuss strategies to encourage engagement by trying to create a warm and accepting atmosphere.
