Colleges usually have condoms in their clinics for people to use. Colleges would like to keep sexually transmitted diseases from not happening.I want to compare the University of Florida and the US’s safe sex initiative. I will be discussing what UF has to offer about safe sex. I will be discussing how UF combats with STIs and how they make sure that the word is spread. I will compare the University of Florida’s safe sex initiative and other colleges in the US to other colleges/universities worldwide. The reason why I am doing worldwide is because I want to see what other countries have to offer (more or less). I will try to get a country similar to the United Sates due to factors of STIs or disease control throughout other countries.

Obviously, in a country that has a lot of diseases that spread, they will have more resources available to treat the disease. Since the United States is healthy and that there is no plethora of diseases that one person can get. I will try to pick other colleges/universities in countries like Canada, Germany, Ireland, and China. I think that those countries are about the same health status/disease status that we (the US) is. I am trying to compare their initiatives on safe sex throughout their colleges/universities with the University of Florida’s.
