Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)

Florida Department of Health in Nassau County Disease Control Division

Are you in the dark about STDs?

Sexually Transmitted Disease (STDs) remain a major public health challenge in the United States. While substantial progress has been made in preventing, diagnosing and treating certain STDs in recent years, DC estimates that approximately 29 million new infections occur each year, almost half of them among young people ages 15 to 24. In addition to the physical and psychological consequences of STDs, these diseases exact a tremendous economic toll.

The 3 Ts to prevent the spread of STDs:

Talk: Talk to your partner and your health care provider about risk factors, safer sex methods and testing

Test: Make an appointment for STD testing

Treat: Treat the disease and avoid additional health problems
