Resources - Sexually Transmitted Infections
Sexually transmitted infections and diseases are one of the most common illnesses found around the world, particularly in women. The World Health Organization estimates that 448 million new infections of curable sexually transmitted (syphilis, gonorrhoea, chlamydia and trichomoniasis) infections occur yearly throughout the world. In pregnant women with untreated early syphilis, 25% of pregnancies result in stillbirth and 14% in neonatal death.
The Johns Hopkins CCGHE wants to continue its efforts to improve these statistics by providing health care workers with updated and practical STI training suited for resource-limited settings.
Additional distance training is currently available through the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Online STD Course. (registration and fee required)
