English Version

Usted puede evitar enfermedades de transmisión sexual completamente mediante la abstinencia o la monogamia de por vida. El riesgo por otra actividad sexual puede reducir al usar condones según 1) las instrucciones explícitas y 2) con la ayuda de servicios médicos y de salud pública que rastrean y tratan a aquellas personas con quienes tuvo contacto sexual.

Usted puede prevenir infecciones oculares si sus ojos no son tocados por nada excepto las manos lavadas.

Las infecciones respiratorias se pueden evitar al no exponerse a aves infectadas. Usted puede prevenir la infección al evitar tal contacto con aves o usar una mascarilla cuando esté rodeado por aves.

Las infecciones neonatales se pueden prevenir mediante el cuidado prenatal que identifique la enfermedad antes del nacimiento.
