Transmission and Prevention

Transmission is the process of passing a disease  or a disease causing pathogen from an infected host individual or a group of infected people to a particular individual or a group of persons regardless whether they are previously infected or not. Prevention is the application of scientific methodologies in order to prevent or moderate major human dysfunctions before they occur. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has introduced different strategies for reducing the STD risk which include: vaccination, mutual monogamy, reducing the number of sexual partners and abstinence. The most effective way to prevent sexual transmission of STIs, HIV / AIDS is to avoid the contact of body parts or fluids which can lead to transfer with an infected partner.
