  1. Ethnic differences in STD rates among female adolescents.

    Article - En anglais

    Ethnic differences in rates of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) were examined in a sample of 205 female adolescents receiving care at two family planning clinics in Houston, Texas.

    New infection and reinfection rates following treatment were also investigated.

    Black teens had a higher rate of past STDs than did Hispanic or White teens.

    However, there were no differences in rates at the time of the clinic visit.

    Of the 143 (69.8%) teens who returned for follow-up care, 21 (14.7%) had new infections ; Black teens had the highest rate.

    The findings indicated that programs for teens need to address cultural, ethnic, and gender issues.
