STD Awareness Month

STD Awareness Month

Event Date: 
Wednesday, April 1, 2020 (All day) to Thursday, April 30, 2020 (All day)

April is STD Awareness Month, a time for young people to learn the facts about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and how to protect their sexual health.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 20 million new STDs occur each year in the United States. STDs affect individuals of all ages; however, youth ages 15 to 24 account for half of all new infections, despite making up only about one-quarter of the sexually active population.

This April, share messages about STD prevention with youth you serve:
