STD awareness month in the USA is the occasion to recall that all inhabitants of the Planet are concerned by STDs. Even if what is at stake can change more or less, depending on the countries, STD awareness stays intrinsically linked to the woman’s condition. There are too many laws which the only purpose is to control human body. Sexual education is a pivot in this awareness: when people don’t receive an appropriate sex education, they are much exposed to STD.
What is at stake:
USA: Sex, Teens and Risk: Conservatives Have It Wrong
Africa: Study Notes Strategies to Lower HIV Risk for Sex Workers
Brazil: Brazil’s economy may be thriving, but its attitude towards children shows it is still lagging behind
