Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Infections

Background

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), also referred to as sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are a major public health challenge in the U.S., affecting approximately 19 million Americans each year, which cost the U.S. healthcare system $16.4 billion annually and cost individuals even more in terms of acute and long-term health consequences. In 'Trends in Reportable Sexually Transmitted Diseases in the United States, 2009', CDC presents STD statistics and trends in the United States through 2009 but points out that many cases of STDs go undiagnosed and unreported and therefore, this data represents only a small proportion of the true national burden of STDs.

Below, we have provided information on STDs including policies and directives, training material, and other resources, to assist healthcare providers and Service members and their families.
