Sexually transmitted infections have been regarded as one of the major global public health problems owing to its immense impact on the sexual and reproductive health of adults and children. The available global estimates depict that more than 360 million infections are being reported on an annual basis. It is an eye opener for all the concerned stakeholders to together plan and take concerted efforts to ensure that all the people who are in need of the health services receives the same either to prevent or get cured of the disease. The role of health workers will be of extreme importance as they have to not only take measures towards the reduction in the incidence of the disease, but also work together to eliminate the stigma and other barriers associated with infections and reporting of the same. In conclusion, sexually transmitted infections continue to remain an endemic public health concern globally and it is the need of the hour to strengthen the prevention and control measures for containment of the infections.
