Key to the prevention and control of STDs are: education of those at risk on the means for reducing the risk for transmission; detection of asymptomatically infected individuals and of persons who are symptomatic but unlikely to seek diagnostic and treatment services; effective diagnosis and treatment of those who are infected; and evaluation, treatment, and counseling of sex partners of persons who have an STD.
