STD Awareness Month is here, along with the alarming news that sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs) are on the rise. Recent CDC data for three nationally-reported STDs—chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis—show staggering numbers, with cases of all three diseases increasing for the first time since 2006.
The good news? STDs are preventable! There are steps each of us can take to minimize the negative, long-term consequences of these infections. To prevent STDs, we need to know how to talk about them, when to test for them, and how to treat them.
CDC's Division of STD Prevention is helping people to be safer and healthier by the prevention of STDs and their complications.
