STD Awareness Month
April 2, 2018
Young people ages 15–24, and gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men continue to be at greatest risk for infection. We know that individual risk behaviors aren’t the only cause. Environmental, social, and cultural factors, including high numbers of STD cases in these populations and difficulty accessing quality health care, contribute to the higher STD burden.
The good news? STDs are preventable! STD Awareness month aims to education the public on steps each of us can take to prevention infection or minimize the negative, long-term consequences of these infections.
