STD Picture Cards

The STD Picture Cards

 are a combination of illustration and graphic photo representation of human male and female anatomy with sequelae related to sexually transmitted infection, particularly syphilis. Designed primarily for use by Disease Intervention Specialists (DIS) and other health professionals, the cards are a practical, illustrative educational tool when working with individuals exposed to or at high risk of exposure to sexually transmitted infections. They may also be useful to those individuals who work with higher-risk populations in settings such as correctional facilities, STD and HIV prevention and care clinics, substance abuse centers, family planning clinics, schools and private medical care facilities. The picture cards consist of two separate files, one comprising the illustrations/images and a separate file with the corresponding descriptions and source credit; this downloadable card set is in a format suitable for commercial-quality reproduction.
