April 9-15 is STI Awareness Week this year and it's time to seriously think about preventing and protecting from sexually transmitted infections.

GYT: Get Yourself Tested is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) campaign that encourages young people to get tested and treated for STIs and HIV to protect their health and that of their partners. According to the CDC, STIs affect people of all ages, yet these infections take a particularly heavy toll on young people.

The GYT campaign highlights the idea that preventing, testing for, and treating STIs is very straightforward. The campaign offers streamlined information and illustrations that help focus on STI awareness, prevention, testing, and treatment among young people.
