Prevention of sexually transmitted diseases

Casual sexual contacts place the traveller at risk of contracting a serious, perhaps fatal, sexually transmitted disease (STD). The common STDs especially prevalent in South-East Asia and Africa are non-specific urethritis, gonorrhoea (especially penicillin-resistant strains), hepatitis B, and syphilis. HIV infection is a rapidly increasing problem, with heterosexual transmission common in Africa and in South-East Asia.
