Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are the most common infectious diseases of public health importance in North America. They are infections that are spread primarily through person-to-person sexual contact. The second major route of transmission for some STIs is blood-to-blood contact, such as that which occurs when sharing needles among injection drug users. They can also be transmitted from mother to child during pregnancy and childbirth.
