STIF Foundation


The National Sexual Health Strategy (2001) emphasised the provision of more sexual health care in the Primary Care setting. In response the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) launched the STI Foundation education programme in 2002.


The STIF Competency Programme is a nationally recognised training and assessment qualification in sexual health.  It is a modular competency-based training and assessment package for non-specialist and specialist healthcare professionals requiring skills development to manage people with sexually transmitted infections.
