HIV and Other Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)


Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), often called sexually transmitted infections (STIs), are infections that are passed from person to person primarily through sexual contact.  STDs can be caused by bacteria, viruses, or parasites.  Examples include gonorrhea, HIV/AIDS, chlamydia, and syphilis.
 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that there are approximately 20 million STIs each year-almost half of them among young people ages 15 to 24.
