About prevalence and incidence statistics:

The term 'prevalence' of Diseases contagious from sex usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Diseases contagious from sex at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Diseases contagious from sex refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Diseases contagious from sex 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.
