The Latin American Region is present at IUSTI through the Latin American and Caribbean Association for the Control of Sexually Transmitted Infections (ALACITS www.alacits.org). ALACITS was founded in 2003 aiming at bringing together professionals from different specialties from the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, who are interested in collaborating on activities related to services, training and research applied to the control of Sexually Transmitted Infections. In 2007, ALACITS, became part of the International Union against Sexually Transmitted Infections (IUSTI) as official representative for the Latin America and Caribbean region.
Colleagues in Latin America may wish to know that there is now an on-line IUSTI membership application and renewal system available here, with payment. If you become a member of IUSTI Latin America automatically you become also a member of ALACITS and viceversa.
