The study investigated how young women's clinical experiences and social context affect their participation in testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and their subsequent sexual behaviour. This qualitative study used a grounded theory approach to address: (i) the use of STI testing among youth; (ii) factors withhxthe health care system and social context young women perceive as. In London, the observed prevalence of HIV-1 declined among all patients presenting with an acute sexually transmitted infection (figure), from % (/) in to % (/) in , an adjusted average decrease of 9% a year (95% confidence interval decrease 1% to 16%).

  Service utilisation. In Table 1, we present the distribution of individuals and services accessed by socio-demographic characteristics and type of mean age of truck drivers accessing the sites was 39 years (SD 9,9). More than half (56%) of them were less than 40 years old (n = /13,), followed by 27% (n = /13,) in the 40–49 year age category, while less than 1% . We used socio‐demographic data from the Demographic Surveillance System (DSS) of Manhiça Health Research Centre (CISM) Data on HIV were collected in two cross‐sectional studies in and 19, These two surveys involved individuals aged 18–47 years in the former, and 18–50 years in the latter, randomized from the DSS CISM.

  As summarized in Table 1, significant socio‐demographic factors associated with delay were: female sex and education of less than 9 years. Among health services factors, delay was associated with outpatient diagnosis of tuberculosis, having visited a private doctor or traditional healer, and more than six tuberculosis‐related health.

Background: Although number of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) reported in STI surveillance increased rapidly for women in Japan during the s, the sexual behavior of women potentially at risk of STI infection remains unknown.

Recently, more and more men who have sex with men (MSM) look for casual partners through online dating platforms in China. However, most are unable to know their partners’ HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STD) statuses, leading to the rapid increase in HIV infection among Chinese MSM.

Effective partner notification is urgently needed to increase the risk awareness of MSM. Prevalence of HIV and syphilis co-infection. According to the results of HIV and syphilis tests, there were 70 participants in the co-infected group, in the mono-infected group (59 with HIV only and 89 with syphilis only) and in the non-infected group, indicating that the prevalence of HIV, syphilis and their co-infection among the study participants was % (/), % (/ Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among the youth are an increasing challenge for public health in Europe.

This study provided estimates of men's (18–25 years) sexual risk behaviour and self-reported STIs and their socio-demographic patterning in Finland and Estonia; two countries that are geographically close, but have very different STI epidemics.

Objectives: To examine the interrelation between demographic and geospatial risk factors for gonorrhoea, chlamydia, genital warts, and genital herpes. Design: We analysed age, sex, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and area of residence for Leeds residents aged 15–54 with Neisseria gonorrhoeae, genital Chlamydia trachomatis, first episode genital herpes, and first episode genital warts.

We conducted a secondary analysis of data from the Uganda Demographic and Health Survey (UDHS ). The primary outcome (STI risk) was self-reported STIs and/or symptoms in the prior 12 months. WHO estimated that nearly 1 million people become infected every day with any of four curable sexually transmitted infections (STIs): chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis, and trichomoniasis.

Despite their high global incidence, STIs remain a neglected area of research. In this Commission, we have prioritised five areas that represent particular challenges in STI treatment and control.

Gonorrhea and chlamydia are among the most prevalent sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in China [1, 2].Men who have sex with men (MSM) is a recognized high risk group for STIs and is estimated to have a population of 2–10 million in China [1, 3].One study conducted from to among MSM in Guangzhou reported an overall gonorrhea prevalence of % and a chlamydia.

The prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases (STD) among female drug abusers was studied by screening new inmates of a rehabilitation centre. Data was collected using a structured questionnaire, physical examination and specimen collection for laboratory investigation at the Community Medicine Clinic of HUSM.

Background Accession of 10 Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries to the EU resulted in the largest migratory influx in peacetime British history. No information exists on the sexual behaviour of CEE migrants within the UK.

The aim of this study was to assess the sexual lifestyles and health service needs of these communities. Methods A survey, delivered electronically and available in.

Diagnoses varied by country of origin, region visited, or categories of travelers. Introduction Factors associated with persistently high Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) prevalence levels in several districts of India are not well understood. This study was undertaken to determine the association of socio-demographic characteristics, economic factors, awareness about HIV and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), and condom use with consistently high HIV .
