Sexually Transmitted Infections among Gay and Bisexual Men
This chapter provides a overview of prevalent sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) among gay and bisexual men. Descriptive epidemiology is presented for bacterial (gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia), viral (human papillomavirus, herpes simplex virus, and human herpes virus 8), and enteric STDs. It discusses various factors responsible for disparate rates of STDs among MSM and identifies promising approaches for resolving disparities, including enhanced surveillance, improved and expanded testing and treatment services, and enhanced community-based responses to STDs among gay and bisexual men.
