7th SYMPOSIUM ON SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES AND UROGENITAL INFECTIONS
Slavko Schonwald symposium

with international participation
Opatija, April 10 -13, 2005

under the auspices of
MINISTRY OF HEALTH AND SOCIAL WELFARE OF THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and urogenital infections are an important public-health and socio-economic problem, not only because of their severe complications and sequelae but also because they increase the risk for transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Some STD pathogens, especially in women, increase the risk for developing malignant diseases, e.g. cervical carcinoma. Sexually transmitted diseases are among the most common diseases throughout the world and have been ranked among the top ten diseases for which adults in developing countries seek medical help.


The World Health Organization has assigned national medical associations to actively participate in the treatment and prevention of STDs. By participating at this symposiuum you also contribute to popular health education about this problem matter.
