STBBI Toolbox

Under the coordination of the NRBHSS Public Health Department, the Sexually Transmitted and Blood-Borne Infections (STBBI) Toolbox brings together all the documents and protocols required to conduct and follow-up on a sexual health consultation, used at regional level in Nunavik’s two health centres. 

This toolbox was developed with the purpose of:  

  • standardizing clinical and public health practices across the region in response to STBBI.  
  • supporting and guiding the interventions of the various professionals involved in promoting sexual health and the prevention of STBBI.  

The toolbox is a result of consultations and consensus-building initiatives among institutional partners and other professionals committed to the regional efforts to counter STBBI. 

The STBBI Toolbox is regularly updated and enhanced through the addition of new tools.
