Preventing STI's

Sharon White - Monday, September 09, 2019 -

The latest edition of Health Matters, PHE's professional resource, focuses on the prevention of 5 common sexually transmitted infections

(STIs): gonorrhoea, chlamydia, syphilis, genital herpes and genital warts. It also covers the public health challenge of antimicrobial resistant

STIs, and the commissioning and improvement of sexual health services. STIs are a major public health concern, which may seriously impact

the health and wellbeing of affected individuals, as well as being costly to healthcare services. If left undiagnosed and untreated, common

STIs can cause a range of complications and long-term health problems, from adverse pregnancy outcomes to neonatal and infant infections, and cardiovascular and neurological damage.
