Abstract: Sexually transmitted infection (STI) prevalence and risks in a sample of rural Thai adolescents and young adults (14–29 years) were examined. Unprotected sex with a casual partner conferred the greatest risk for prevalent STIs, particularly for younger adolescents, and alcohol use increased the STI risk for women but not for men.
