More than Third of U.S. Population Have STIs

CDC’s analyses included eight common STIs:

  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Hepatitis B virus (HBV)
  • Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2)
  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Syphilis
  • Trichomoniasis

“By contrast, there were 1,524,092 bachelor’s degrees awarded in the United States in the 2007-2008 school year, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. That means the total number of new STIs in 2008 outpaced the total number of new bachelor’s degrees by nearly 13 to 1, and the number of new STIs among Americans in the 15-to-24 age bracket outnumbered new bachelor’s degrees by more than 6 to 1.” Said a report.
