Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are on the rise in the United States. While great strides have been made in promoting the health of people living with HIV and preventing new HIV infections, more can be done to enhance STI prevention, screening, and treatment. This report discusses key actions for HIV programs to reduce the public health impact of STIs. The following key actions are recommended: (1) HIV prevention and care programs need to conduct more STI screenings, (2) HIV and STI programs can jointly adopt best practices for promoting sexual health, and (3) HIV surveillance and research initiatives need to strengthen the STI response.
