Description

STD classification and terminology
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) - refers only to infections that are causing symptoms.
  • Sexually transmitted infection (STI) - refers to infection with any germ that can cause an STD, even if the infected person has no symptoms.
  • Venereal disease (VD) - term used before the 1990s.
  • Genitourinary medicine (GUM) is an expanding specialty which is primarily related to the treatment and prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
  • Sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence. For sexual health to be attained and maintained, the sexual rights of all persons must be respected, protected and fulfilled.

Low Prospects and High Risk: Structural Determinants of Health Associated with Sexual Risk Among Young African American Women Residing in Resource-Poor Communities in the South.
Thu, 21 Aug 2014 15:23:04 +0100 | American Journal of Community Psychology
This study examines the association between high-risk sexual behavior and structural determinants of sexual health among a sample of young African American women. 237 young African American women (16-19 years old) from economically disadvantaged neighborhoods in North Carolina were enrolled into a randomized trial testing the efficacy of an adapted HIV/STI prevention intervention. Logistic regression analyses predicted the likelihood that young women reporting lack of food at home, homelessness and low future prospects would also report sexual risk behaviors. Young women reporting a lack of food at home (22 %), homelessness (27 %), and low perceived education/employment prospects (19 %) had between 2.2 and 4.7 times the odds as those not reporting these risk factors of reporting multip...

Urban African American Women's Explanations of Recurrent Chlamydia Infections
Wed, 20 Aug 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic, and Neonatal Nursing
ConclusionChlamydia infection among African American urban adolescents is nearly 3 times that of the general population. Lack of education is still a barrier to STI prevention. Participants reported a desire to receive counseling and support from the health care staff. A STI care model that includes education, counseling, and regular screening of high‐risk adolescents should be considered. Further research, using the HBM or similar theoretical models, are needed to gauge the success of any planned or implemented intervention.
