Understanding and Preventing Dangerous Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) pose a significant global health burden, with an estimated 250 million new cases reported annually. While most STDs are primarily transmitted through sexual contact, some common infections can also be acquired through non-sexual means.
