Sexually Transmitted Diseases Including Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection

Part of the Issues in Clinical Child Psychology book series (ICCP)


The risk of acquiring a sexually transmitted disease (STD) is one of the most significant and immediate risks to the health and well-being of adolescents. From an economic and social standpoint, these infections continue to exact a significant toll on adolescents and ultimately on society. This toll can be measured in terms of projected costs of certain infections, such as chlamydia infections (Washington, 1987), and in terms of health outcomes, such as the number of ectopic pregnancies (Chow, Darling, & Greenbert, 1987) and the rate of infertility (Westrom, 1980). The real concern, however, is that in an era when a sexually transmitted infection—human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection—can result in a fatal illness—acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)—we have begun to measure the impact in terms of deaths of adolescents and young adults from AIDS. For this reason, the potential impact of STDs is all the more significant and prevention of these infections an even higher priority.
