Sexually transmitted diseases: biggest problem in Australia
This article aims to inform and bring relevant data on sexually transmitted diseases, which are one of the biggest problems and challenges that exist with humanity since its existence. Sexual diseases are transmitted through sexual contact, where the twists present in one person’s body pass to another during the sexual act. These viruses, parasites or bacteria that settle in the human body cause the most diverse types of diseases and health problems.
Among the most common diseases known to us are the human papilloma virus, gonorrhea, genital herpes, chlamydia, syphilis and the AIDS virus.
For centuries, medical speCialists have sought to develop ways to prevent, treat and cure these diseases, a difficult task given the complexity as they spread rapidly, because they spread rapidly and some mutate. extra hour. The fact is that these diseases cause terrible damage to people’s lives and a huge expense to the health care system worldwide.
Here is some data on sexually transmitted diseases in Australia, according to reports collected by the Department of Health to inform authorities and the public on public health planning and action.
– According to data available on the site (www.edoninnestore.net): bloodborne (virus) Chlamydia increased from 1999 to 2011, from 74 to 363 infections per 100,000 people.
– Gonorrhea, in turn, has increased since 1996 – but the rate has tripled between 2008 and 2017, from 36 records to 118 per 100,000 people.
Ã¢Â€ÂœHepatitis B is against these results, because its rates dropped between nineteen and ninety-six and two thousand and three, which is forty-four to thirty-one cases per one hundred thousand people. remaining stable until two thousand and nine.
– Hepatitis C also decreased from one hundred and two to sixty-four cases per one hundred thousand people in ninety-sixty-two thousand and four, of which it continued to decline, but more slowly, to forty-four cases per 100,000 people. . at two thousand and seventeen.
– Reported cases of syphilis doubled between 2004 and 2017, from 10 to 26 per 100,000 people.
– Cases of HIV registration per 100,000 people fell slightly from 5 in 1996 to 4 in 2016.
These data are from Australia only and show worrying data on these and other sexually transmitted diseases, but they also show that governments have been trying to map to plan and control these diseases with prevention and treatment policies. and information so that people can know the risks and protect themselves.
In many countries, such as the United Kingdom, they store data from the last century and this data is essential for mapping these diseases. However, in Australia, there is only one article published for nearly twenty-five years describing reports of sexually transmitted diseases for a few decades. This article has a forty year interval, where there have been major changes in society in general, such as the creation of antibiotics and the oral contraceptive pill.
Some sexual health clinics have been publicly funded in Australia in the last century, but only one clinic, the Melbourne Sexual Health Center (MSHC), has recorded data since the last centuries. This clinic provides data during this period and also aims to bring information to the future.
Sexually transmitted diseases are very old, but confusing because the information was not accurate and people were afraid to talk about these taboo diseases, because people were very discriminated against and even excluded from life in society. Over the centuries, medical studies have been conducted to ascertain the possible causes of these diseases and to develop effective treatments that would completely eliminate these viruses from the human body or at least be contained to prevent symptoms and even transmission between people who have had sex. The fact is, to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, it is necessary to compromise each person and the constant work of world governments, so that ordinary people become aware and know the problems generated by this virus, only then can one day dream of to the end of these diseases or a control so that the population does not suffer so much from the ills caused by them.
