HIV transmission and viral diversity

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections that you can get by having sex or skin-to-skin contact between genitals with someone who has an STD and these are also sometimes called sexually transmitted infections or Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs). Whatever you call them, they can cause serious health problems. And they happen a lot to young people: About half of all new infections happen to people ages 15 to 24. There are more than 25 STDs caused by many different bacteria and viruses. Each STD has its own symptoms, but some have similar symptoms. Treatment of viral infections such as HIV involves patient care and moral support including antiretroviral therapy. Bacterial infections can be treated by administering antibiotics to the patients. Yeast infections can be primarily treated by sterilisation methods. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that in 2007, there were approximately 24,000 HIV-infected youth between 13 and 24 years of age in the US.  Currently, HIV infection is the seventh leading cause of death in this age group.  During 2001–2004, in the 33 states with confidential name-based HIV reporting, there were 17,824 persons 13–24 years of age with a diagnosis of HIV/AIDS, of whom 62% were males.
