The Region VIII Infertility Prevention Project (IPP) ended in June 2013. From 1982-2013, JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc./Denver (JSI/Denver) successfully lead the project through funding received from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Further information about the Region VIII IPP and other JSI projects can be obtained on JSI.com.
This site was designed to provide a central location for chlamydia- and gonorrhea-related resources for state and local STD and family planning programs, and public health laboratories. It was developed by JSI/Denver in collaboration with our funder and the Region VIII IPP grantees.
The Region VIII Infertility Prevention Project was dedicated to the prevention of infertility caused by sexually transmitted diseases, particularly chlamydia and gonorrhea. The Region VIII Infertility Prevention Project was part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Infertility Prevention Project (IPP).
The purpose of the project was to control STD-related infertility through the collaborative efforts of Sexually Transmitted Disease, Family Planning, and other health care providers throughout the Region VIII states (Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming).
Many of the resources from this site were incorporated into the new STDRHTTAC project for Regions VII and VIII, called SHRP-TTAC http://shrpttac.jsi.com.
