This paper proposes a model to describe the implementation of STD control programs and illustrates aspects of the model through reference to four different STD prevention initiatives. The model includes four domains of program implementation: an environment in which policy, partnership and participation interact with implementation activities; program milestones such as approval and program launch; a dynamic implementation progression beginning with implementation planning and the mobilization of program implem enters, through a series of steps involving successive waves of client contact over time; and evaluation, both formative and summative. As demonstrated by the initiatives described here, STD control programs face challenges to implementation in all four domains. Our implementation model does not focus upon the program development process. Careful program planning can be seen as the prologue to successful program implementation. A program plan ensures that the program is logical, appropriate for the target audience, and has a mechanism for evaluation.
