About

Overview

Sexually transmitted diseases are an unfortunate danger for people who are sexually active. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that half of all sexually transmitted infections affect people ages 15 to 24, so it is crucial to educate young adults about the consequences of unprotected sex before they become sexually active. Full-color photographs and detailed infographics supplement the informative text’s discussion of the most common sexually transmitted diseases and the ways in which their spread can be prevented.
