April is National STD Awareness Month in Minnesota. The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) encourages all Minnesotans to learn about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), one of the state’s most persistent health problems, during the observance of National STD Awareness Month. Public awareness and knowledge are critically low around the country and STDs remain at epidemic levels. National STD Awareness Month is a national health observance sponsored by the American Social Health Association (ASHA) to help break the silence and alert everyone to the growing crisis of STDs in America.
