STI classification and terminology
Venereal | Genitourinary | Urogenital | Genital | Sexual | Sex
- Sexually transmitted disease (STD) - refers only to infections that are causing symptoms.
- Sexually transmitted infection (STI) - refers to infection with any germ that can cause an STD, even if the infected person has no symptoms.
- Venereal disease (VD) - term used before the 1990s.
- Genitourinary medicine (GUM) is an expanding specialty which is primarily related to the treatment and prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
- Sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence. For sexual health to be attained and maintained, the sexual rights of all persons must be respected, protected and fulfilled.

Blood Test May Detect Sexually Transmitted Throat Cancer
Tue, 18 Jun 2013 16:00:00 +0100 | Health News from Medical News Today
A blood test can detect antibodies of HPV that can cause throat and oral cancers years before the symptoms of the disease become apparent, researchers from the National Cancer Institute and the International Agency for Research on Cancer reported in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. In the study, close to 1 in 3 people with oropharyngeal cancer had antibodies to HPV (human papilloma virus), compared with fewer than 1 in 100 without cancer. When present, these antibodies could be found several years before onset of the disease... (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)

Barebacking among men who have sex with men recruited through a Swedish website: associations with sexual activities at last sexual encounter.
Mon, 17 Jun 2013 15:50:02 +0100 | Euro Surveill
The objectives of the study were twofold: to describe the sexual activities associated with barebacking behaviour at last sexual encounter, and to evaluate the relationship of barebacking with relevant variables. Men who reported barebacking (n=356) and men who did not (n=3,278) were compared. On the basis of the results of the analyses, the socio-sexual profile of barebackers drawn was one that is at increased risk of acquiring human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other sexually transmitted infections due to their sexual practices, particularly unprotected anal intercourse, but also group sex and rimming. In a multivariate logistic regression analysis, the likelihood of engaging in barebacking was higher for MSM who reported more frequent HIV testing (odds ratio (OR)=5.16), a higher num...

Africa: An Africa Fit for Women and Girls

I believe in an Africa that is fit for women and girls; that protects their well-being and creates a supportive environment for them to realise their aspirations. As I look at the work done by African states in pursuit of gender equality, I am convinced that the continent is either on course for another dismal episode in the empowerment of women, or it's on the brink of a women's rights revolution.
