Guidelines for the prevention of STIs, including HIV/AIDS, on board merchant ships

The ship, where seafarers work and spend all their time during a voyage, is the best place for health intervention.

These guidelines for shipping companies highlight the risks to seafarers of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV/AIDS. They provide information on the most common infections, as well guidance on how to implement a successful STIs and HIV/AIDS prevention campaign.
