Answer:

Answer:

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) have significant clinical, economical and social implications. It is very important that awareness of STIs should reach all individuals and a concerted effort should be taken to spread the awareness.
The impact of STIs on human health is augmented by the fact that they are transmitted by unsafe sex practices and many can have serious long-term effects or even be fatal.
Several STIs have a long incubation or latency period and can remain asymptomatic thus resulting in faster transmission among individuals. Women are at a greater risk as some of the infectious agents can cause cancers of the cervix. Also, they can transmit the STIs to newborn through pregnancy or breast feeding. Hence, it is imperative that all individuals respond positively to being educated about STIs.
