The International Union against Sexually Transmitted Infections (IUSTI) is the oldest international organisation in the field (founded in 1923). Its object is the achievement of international cooperation in the control of sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV infection.
IUSTI is especially concerned not only with the medical aspects but the social and epidemiological aspects of the control of sexually transmitted diseases and increasingly HIV/AIDS.
IUSTI is on the Roster of the United Nations Economic and Social Council, and is an Official Non-Government Organisation in Consultative Status with the World Health Organisation.
The International Union against Sexually Transmitted Infections (hereafter referred to as the Union or IUSTI) is a UK-registered charity, without political religious or social ties.
The IUSTI has a central Executive consisting of the President, Secretary General, Honorary Treasurer and Assistant Secretary, together with Regional Directors for Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific and Africa. These officers are helped by an Executive Board composed of senior international STD experts.
Membership is open to individuals who have a professional interest in the control of sexually transmitted diseases. It is emphasised that a medical qualification is not required. Membership is also open to organisations such as national organisations for the study of sexually transmitted diseases and from sponsors.
