Here are some stats from this article published on the BBC website yesterday which highlights that the sexual health of young UK adults worsened in 2006 despite a concerted public health effort to turn it around:
  • In 2006, a total of 376,508 new sexually transmitted infections (STIs) were diagnosed – up 2.2% on 2005, the Health Protection Agency found.
  • Young adults are disproportionately affected by STIs, accounting for 65% of all chlamydia, 55% of all genital warts and 48% of gonorrhoea diagnoses in genitourinary medicine clinics across the UK in 2006, the HPA found.
