Sexually transmitted infections, e.g., HIV, syphilis, papillomavirus, gonorrhoea and hepatitis, amongst others, are infections acquired while practicing unprotected sexual intercourse with an infected person. The incidence of sexually transmitted infections has increased in recent years, particularly in young adults and men who have sex with men.
