HC Deb 04 March 2002 vol 381 c136W
Mr. Key

To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he will implement his sexual health strategy; and if he will make a statement. [39314]

Yvette Cooper

An action plan outlining implementation of the sexual health and HIV strategy will be published in the spring. In addition, we have started to prepare for implementation by asking health authorities to undertake a baseline review and by seeking expressions of interest in chlamydia screening. Bids for chlamydia screening have now been received and are being considered. The Health Development Agency review of what works for local HIV/STI prevention will be available later this year and a new campaign to increase awareness of sexually transmitted infections (including HIV) and how to prevent them is planned for the autumn.
