Abstract
During the last 20 years, both the United Kingdom and the Russian Federation have seen changes to clinical services for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) health systems and other mechanisms through which STDs are controlled. In the UK these changes followed the description of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV); its causal agent. In Russia, the breakdown of the Soviet Union following glasnost and perestroika, and its associated political, social and economic changes generated substantial developments to the ideological and legislative framework within which STD control is achieved as well as a revolution in the financial base upon which clinical STD services operate. The purpose of this paper is to sketch these developments in STD services within the 2 countries to provide a context for the series of papers presented in this edition.

Abstract
After continuous decline throughout the 1980s, surveillance-defined estimates of the incidence of syphilis in Russia have shown a rapid and substantial increase during the 1990s. The reasons for this epidemic are unclear, but must be sought among changes both in sexual behaviour and in the patterns of provision, use, and effectiveness of diagnostic, treatment, and contact tracing services. High incidence of sexually transmitted disease causes correspondingly high levels of morbidity and suffering as well as significant health-care and other economic costs. Our current understanding suggests that the transmissibility of HIV is increased by infection with sexually transmitted disease. The syphilis epidemic together with changes in sexual behaviour, increased travel and migration, and rapid increases in injecting drug use may create the conditions for an epidemic of sexually acquired HIV infection in Russia that substantially outstrips those encountered in most Western European countries.

Abstract
The countries of the former Soviet Union are currently experiencing major epidemics of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). By 1997 rates of syphilis notification in the Russian Federation had risen to 277 per 100,000 total population, a 43-fold increase over 1989 levels, with rises proportionally larger among young women. Epidemics of gonorrhoea occurred earlier in Russia with official notification rates rising from 105 per 100,000 in 1987 to 232 per 100,000 in 1993; and exceeded one per 100 among both young men and young women in that year. The true incidence of gonorrhoea is certainly much higher. These STI epidemics cause direct suffering and may be important in significantly enhancing the transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), in the context of liberalization of sexual behaviour, and epidemics of injecting drug use and related HIV transmission. This paper reviews recent epidemiological trends in syphilis and other STIs in Russia against the background of existing mechanisms for the control of these infections.

Abstract
A total of 159 homosexuals suffering from various forms of syphilis, aged 17 to 71, were screened for chlamydial antigen with the use of fluorescent monoclonal antibodies. Asymptomatic urogenital chlamydiosis was detected in 33 of 107 (30.8 percent) homosexual syphilitics. In 52 patients the material was collected simultaneously from the throat, urethra, and rectum; Chlamydia were detected in 71.2 percent of these.
