Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are spread primarily through sexual contact and are among the most common diseases in the world.

STIs can cause physical discomfort, infertility, and sometimes — if left untreated — death. For women, they may also lead to chronic abdominal pain and ectopic pregnancy. Some STIs can increase a person’s susceptibility to HIV infection.

Every day more than 1 million people are infected with a curable STI.

HIV/AIDS

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)is the virus that causes acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).AIDSdevelops as HIV weakens the body’s immune system and its ability to fight off infection and fatal illness.

HIVis spread through sexual contact and exchange of some bodily fluids, including: blood, semen, vaginal fluid, breast milk, and other bodily fluids containing blood.

Every day over 13,500 men, women, and children become infected with HIV. Half of all new infections are among young people aged 15 to 24.

What makes women vulnerable to STIs/HIV/AIDS?
  • Worldwide, women account for 48% of adults living with HIV. In Africa, HIV-positive women outnumber infected men by 3 million.
    • Because of their physiology, women are 2 to 4 times more likely than men to contract an STI, including HIV, during unprotected vaginal sex.
    • Gender roles, especially in sexual relations, may limit a woman’s ability to refuse sex or negotiate for safer sex, and may hinder a man’s willingness to use a condom.
  • A study in India found that 93% of women attending an STI clinic were married, 91% of whom had never had sex with anyone but their husbands.
