It revealed the following trend. From 2011 to 2017, acceleration in numbers of newly confirmed Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) cases is evident. The morbidity of AIDS and Gonorrhea is gradually increasing; but the spread of Syphilis might have been halted, with its morbidity gradually dropped. The data shows that STD epidemic in Shanghai is generally under control after many comprehensive management measures been taken.
