Worldwide prevalence of Sexually Transmitted Diseases:

Worldwide, an estimated 333 million new cases of four curable STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydial infection, syphilis and trichomoniasis) occurred in 1997. (Source: excerpt from Sexually Transmitted Diseases Statistics, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)

Prevelance of Sexually Transmitted Diseases discussion:

The incidence of STDs is rising, in part because in the last few decades, young people have become sexually active earlier yet are marrying later. In addition, divorce is more common. The net result is that sexually active people today are more likely to have multiple sex partners during their lives and are potentially at risk for developing STDs. (Source: excerpt from Sexually Transmitted Diseases, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)

Incidence of Sexually Transmitted Diseases:

In the United States, an estimated 15.3 million new cases of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) occur each year, at least one-quarter of them among teenagers. (Source: excerpt from Sexually Transmitted Diseases Statistics, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)

    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

    The term 'prevalence' of Sexually Transmitted Diseases usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Sexually Transmitted Diseases at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Sexually Transmitted Diseases refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Sexually Transmitted Diseases diagnosed each year. Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.
