As is the case with traditional venereal diseases, the incidence of sexually transmitted viral disease is currently increasing. Controlling the spread of these viral diseases depends on public health measures similar to those instituted for other venereal diseases. Such measures include identification of infectious individuals and their sexual contacts and, most important, patient education. Recommendations for preventing infection should emphasize avoidance of sexual contact with partners of unknown or high-risk status and appropriate use of condoms and spermicide.
