A new Rutgers University-led, $12.5 million federally funded project is working to improve screening of sexually transmitted infections and treatment practices in some of the nation’s hardest-hit locales, especially among people living with or at risk for HIV.

Funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the three-year cooperative agreement was awarded to Rutgers School of Nursing’s François-Xavier Bagnoud Center.

“Common STIs are not only a major health concern on their own, they are also known to increase the risk of both transmitting and acquiring HIV,” said John Nelson, program director of the AIDS Education and Training Center’s National Coordinating Resource Center, in a prepared statement.
