  • Description:
    While sexually transmitted diseases affect individuals of all ages, STDs take a particularly heavy toll on young people. CDC estimates that youth ages 15-24 make up just over one-quarter of the sexually active population, but account for half of the 20 million new sexually transmitted infections that occur in the United States each year.

    This infographic highlights the impact, causes, and consequences of STDs among young people – and what they can do to protect themselves.
