Although China has actively responded to the global health sector strategy on HIV, viral hepatitis and sexually transmitted Infections 2022-2030 proposed by the World Health Organization, STIs in China are still a public health issue that needs attention due to the combined impact of rapid economic development, rich ethnic diversity, vast geographical range, and institutional changes.

According to the current situation STIs, including HIV/AIDS, in China, the differences in prevalence by gender, age and region were analyzed. From a public health perspective, this paper will propose improvements that can be made in the control of STIs in China.
