STD epidemics around requires bolstering prevention efforts
and addressing new challenges - but the payoff is substantial
in terms of improving health, reducing disparities and saving
billions of dollars."
An effective national response to the STD epidemic
requires engagement from many players:
* Providers: make STD screening a standard part of
medical care, especially in pregnant women. Integrate STD
prevention and treatment into prenatal care and other
routine visits.
* Public: talk openly about STDs, get tested regularly,
and reduce risk by using condoms or practicing mutual
monogamy if sexually active.

* Parents and providers: offer young people safe, effective
ways to access needed information and services.
* State and local health departments: continue to direct
resources to people hardest hit by the STD epidemic and
work with community partners to maximize their impact.
