Abstract : This report evaluates the 1995 US Air Force (USAF) Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) Prevention and Control Program. The report analyzes data from 88 medical treatment facilities worldwide and compares 1995 data with that from 1992-94. The 1995 USAF active duty total STD incidence rate was 7.64 cases per 1,000 personnel. This rate represents a 18.9% decline from the 1994 reported STD incidence rate of 9.41 per 1,000 personnel. Among active duty personnel, chlamydia infections continue to be the most frequently reported STD, followed by gonorrhea. Since 1992, the number of cases of STDs have also been declining among the nonactive duty population (dependents and retirees).
