Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are common forms of infections transmitted through unprotected vaginal, anal, or oral sex. STDs affect men and women. However, gay and bisexual and men are disproportionately impacted by STDs.

The National Prevention Information Network’s (NPIN) primary focus is to support public health professionals in their prevention efforts. NPIN offers links to valuable STD resources. These include:


Additionally, The NPIN Community provides a forum for professionals to connect, share, and collaborate in meaningful conversations with other prevention partners. Community members also get access to breaking news and latest information about advancements in prevention strategies. Registration is easy – you can begin connecting with and learning from other STD partners.
