Diseases can spread like wildfire, but there are ways to protect oneself. The first step is being informed. If you are thinking about attending a college in Asia you should know that they have the highest numbers on most sexually transmitted diseases including, but not limited to, Syphilis, Gonorrhea, and Chlamydia. If you are thinking about going to Africa, you should be aware that Sub-Saharan areas have the highest statistics worldwide for HIV and AIDS with 24.7 million affected. Asia comes in at second with almost 9 million (www.avert.org/worldstats ).
