IUSTI guidelines are intended for use by specialists in the field of sexually transmitted infections. Nothing in these guidelines is intended to supersede or substitute for the normal doctor – patient relationship. The guidelines are produced on behalf of the following organisations: IUSTI Europe; the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV); the European Dermatology Forum (EDF); the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID); International Society for Infectious Diseases in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (ISIDOG). The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the European Office of the World Health Organisation (WHO-Europe) also contributed to their development.

Current guidelines have been through a substantial editorial and peer review process.
The 2020 agreed protocol for the production of European guidelines is available here.
The current editorial board is listed here.
