The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that people who have STDs (sexually transmitted disease) such as gonorrhea, herpes, and syphilis are more likely to get HIV compared to people who are STD-free. The same behaviors that put people at risk for acquiring STDs can put them at risk for getting HIV.

Each year, April marks the observance of STD Awareness Month and it is the time for individuals, health care providers, and community-based organizations to encourage and bring a renewed sense of enthusiasm and focus to STD awareness and prevention efforts throughout the month.
