Sexually Transmitted Diseases
There are more than 25 diseases spread primarily by sexual activity. Together these infections—referred to as either sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) or sexually transmitted infection (STIs)—have created a significant public health challenge.
In the United States, an estimated 19 million people become infected with one or more STDs each year. Still, less than half of adults ages 18–44 have ever been tested for an STD other than HIV/AIDS. SIECUS believes that young people and adults need access to information about STDs, disease prevention methods, and testing and treatment services.
