Excerpt
In the United States, more than 65 million people are currently living with an incurable sexually transmitted disease (std). An additional 15 million people become infected with one or more stds each year, roughly half of whom contract lifelong infections (Cates, 1999).Yet, stds are one of the most under-recognized health problems in the country today. Despite the fact that stds are extremely widespread, have severe and sometimes deadly consequences, and add billions of dollars to the nation’s healthcare costs each year,most people in the United States remain unaware of the risks and consequences of all but the most prominent std—the human immunodeficiency virus or hiv.
