Journal of the American Medical Association 2061112. An estimated three million cases of STIs other than HIV are acquired each year among persons between ten and nineteen years old.

Estimates of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) among adolescents range from 112,000 to 250,000 in the United States, although actual prevalence is not known because representative data are not available.Many college campuses have cultures that are at least covertly supportive of alcohol consumption, and many administrators treat the issue with benign neglect.
