Protect against STIs

 

If you're 16-24, you're more at risk of getting a STI (sexually transmitted infection)

 

  • You don't need to have sex with lots of people to get a STI
  • Many STIs are symptomless and, if left untreated, can cause long-term health problems
  • STIs like gonorrhoea are becoming harder to treat or may not be treatable at all
  • 59% of people who got chlamydia or gonorrhoea in 2016 were aged 16-24

A new Public Health England campaign - 'Protect against STIs' - has been launched, aiming to reduce the rates of STIs among 16 - 24 year olds through condom usage.
