The last decade has seen a huge amount of change in the area of sexually transmitted infection control and prevention, including the development of high-profile vaccines for preventing the spread of cervical cancer-causing human papillomavirus (HPV), novel control methods for HIV and AIDS, and even the discussion of more widespread use of controversial abstinence-only sex education programs. Fully revised and updated to reflect the changes of the past ten years, Sexually Transmitted Diseases: Vaccines, Control and Prevention 2nd Edition brings researchers, clinical investigators, clinicians, and students the most up-to-date research, findings and thought on sexual infection prevention, control and therapy available and serves as an essential reference for anyone working in the field.
