Sexually Transmitted Diseases (otherwise known as STDs) affect people of all ages, backgrounds, and all walks of life. In the United States alone, about 20 million new cases are recorded yearly, about 50% of which occur among young people ages 15 – 24 years. STDs have a significant economic impact, with direct medical costs projected at 17 billion dollars each year in this country alone.
Therefore, getting factual information about sexual health and sexually transmitted diseases is increasingly important. Most of the STDs are preventable. By having the right information and utilizing the proper protection, we can stay clear of the majority of STDs. Sexually Transmitted Disease Guide online version is made available by FREEDOM Network (a non-profit nonprofit organization) for public education.
