Despite recent advances, Sexually Transmitted Blood Borne Infections (STBBI) remain a significant health concern in Canada and around the world, even though they are largely preventable, treatable and, in many cases, curable. International organizations, such as UNAIDS and WHO have mobilized the global response by establishing goals and targets to eliminate STBBI as a public health threat by 2030. In an effort to improve our domestic response to STBBI, the Government of Canada and its Provincial and Territorial partners recently released a new Pan-Canadian STBBI Framework for Action that will guide Canada’s efforts to reduce the health impact of STBBI and to contribute to global efforts. Developed in consultation with various partners and stakeholders from across the country, such as people living with or with lived experience of STBBI, Indigenous Peoples, civil society, and health professionals, the framework sets out an overarching, comprehensive and integrated approach to addressing STBBI.
