The paper reviews methodologies for measuring quality of sexually transmitted disease (STD) case management through facility based assessments. These include observations and interviews of providers, as promoted by the World Health Organization's Global Programme on AIDS, and some of the viable alternatives including patient exit interviews, mystery patients, record review and patient encounter forms with supervisory visits. The paper concludes that the alternative approaches are feasible in resource poor settings and that they provide crucial data for evaluation and continued program development.
