This article presents an overview of the epidemiology and control of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the Nordic countries. These countries have succeeded in controlling gonorrhoea and syphilis, and the incidence of HIV infection is low. However, during the last few years the incidence of all STIs has increased, although from very low levels. Genital chlamydial infection is still prevalent, and is also increasing. Dermatovenereologists are responsible for the specialized care of STIs, but family doctors and gynaecologists are responsible for the management of a great portion of STIs.
