Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are a global concern. Although several countries have tracked the incidence of STIs acquired during travel to foreign countries, the United States lags behind in this practice. Nevertheless, there is evidence from the US and several countries that women engage in sexual risk behaviors during travel whether domestic or foreign, thereby placing themselves at risk for contracting STIs. Guidelines for assessment, prevention, and travel-related supplies and resources are discussed.
