  • Description:
    Using the WestlawNext legal research database, a search was conducted for statutes that explicitly relate to sexually transmitted disease across all fifty states and the District of Columbia. The search terms were constructed to return statutes that contain any variant of the root words “sexual,” “transmit,” and “disease” within ten words of one another, or any of the following terms: syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, venereal disease, human papillomavirus, trichcomoniasis, cervical cancer, genital warts, or bacterial vaginosis.

    Statutes were selected for inclusion if they included one or more of our search terms and did not solely relate to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), or primary or secondary education (i.e., sexual education curricula in schools). Statutes were compiled and organized by state.

    This analysis only includes state statutes (laws passed by a state legislature), and does not include potentially relevant laws from other levels of government (i.e., federal or local) nor other sources of law (i.e., judicial case law and administrative agency rules and regulations). Thus, this analysis is not meant to be inclusive of all potential laws related to sexually transmitted disease in a particular jurisdiction. Statues that were identified are presented by state.
