Sexually transmitted infections and reproductive tract infections (STIs/RTIs) are important public health problems in India. Studies suggest that 6% of the adult population in India is infected with one or more STIs/RTIs. Individuals with STIs/RTIs have a significantly higher chance of acquiring and transmitting HIV. Moreover, STIs/RTIs are also known to cause infertility and reproductive morbidity. Controlling STI/RTI helps decrease HIV infection rates and provides a window of opportunity for counseling about HIV prevention and reproductive health. There are 27 Designated STI/RTI Clinics in Uttarakhand.
