The Health Protection Agency has published 'Sexually transmitted infections and young people in the United Kingdom: 2008 Report'. The figures show a 6% increase in the total number of new sexually transmitted infections (STIs) diagnosed in 2007 compared to 2006. While just one in eight of the population are aged 16 to 24 years old, this age group accounts for around half of all newly diagnosed STIs in the UK - 65% of all chlamydia, 55% of all genital warts and 50% of gonorrhoea infections diagnosed in GUM clinics last year. The report offers recommendations for reducing STIs among young people.
