Sexually transmitted infections appear to be an increasing problem in several European countries, especially among teenagers 16-19 years old. This may indicate that adolescents lack the necessary information and options which can help them lead healthy sexual and reproductive lives. In this work, basic sexually transmitted infections knowledge and awareness and comprehensive Human Papilloma Virus awareness of school-going adolescence aged 12-20 years was assessed using a systematic literature search and a multi-centric school-based survey. Results of this work can help point out areas where sexually transmitted diseases risk communication for adolescents needs to be improved.
