STIs (sexually transmitted infections) are one of the most critical health challenges we face today. It is estimated that over 65 million people in the US have a viral STI. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) estimates that there are 19 million new infections every year in the United States alone. That means one in every two sexually active people will come into contact with an STI.
Undetected and untreated STIs can increase a person’s risk for HIV and cause other serious health consequences. STI screening can help detect disease early and, when treated is one of the most effective tools available to protect one’s health and prevent the spread of STIs to others.
