The objectives of STI prevention and treatment to reduce their prevalence, reduce the duration of infection, and prevent the development of complications.
Primary prevention involves raising public awareness about sexually transmitted diseases. This includes raising awareness about safe sex.
Secondary prevention is related to treatment. Apart from HIV and viral infections, it is possible to cure the patient completely of these diseases. Therefore, it will no longer be contagious and the transmission chain of infection will be broken.
Most sexually transmitted diseases are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms. Therefore, a person who has a regular sexual life should be tested for STIs at least once a year.
If diagnosed positively, any infection can be treated and managed with medication, and some are completely curable.
