Many sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as hepatitis B virus, and human papillomavirus can be effectively prevented with vaccines. However, vaccines for other STDs (e.g., human immunodeficiency viruses (HIV), herpes simplex virus (HSV), gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia, etc.) are under development. Although the focus of most researchers worldwide is more on HIV vaccine development, this review focuses largely on challenges being faced and current development on vaccines against gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydial infection, chancroid, and trichomoniasis.
