About statistics:

This page presents a variety of statistics about Sexually Transmitted Diseases. 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.
