STD Test Statistics in Wilmington

 

Wilmington is the largest city in Delaware and has one of the highest rates of STD infections in the country, let alone the state. The state ranks sixth nationally for its high rates of chlamydia and gonorrhea infections, with a large percentage of these coming from the area. Even though many people with chlamydia and gonorrhea do not have symptoms, these infections are spread easily and can have a serious effect on a future reproductive health and fertility. Delaware also has one of the highest rates of HIV in the country. Early diagnosis and treatment are critical in order to prevent the spread of these diseases and to protect the long-term health of infected individuals.

  • From 2008 to 2010 there was a 15% increase in new chlamydia cases in Delaware.
  • In 2010 there were 504 new cases of chlamydia for every 100,000 people, much higher than the national rate of 422.6 cases per 100,000 people.
  • The number of new gonorrhea cases dropped slightly from 1,045 in 2008 to 1,010 in 2010, but the rate of gonorrhea cases is still higher than the national average.
  • Gonorrhea can be passed from mother to child during childbirth, so testing is critical to prevent transmission.
  • New Castle County has 4-5 times more deaths per year from HIV/AIDS than any other county in the state.

Men who have sex with men of all races, African Americans, and Hispanics/Latinos are disproportionately affected by HIV, but the number of women in Delaware who are newly infected is increasing.

 

STD Testing and Sexual Education

 

Like many other states, Delaware requires education about sexuality as part of health education in kindergarten through twelfth grade. According to state policy, sexuality education must include an “HIV-prevention program that stresses the benefits of abstinence from high-risk behaviors.”

However the abstinence-only approach is not necessarily effective. The Delaware Adolescent Sexual Health State Plan says that young people are more likely to have sex at early ages, have more frequent sexual activity, have more sexual partners, and are less likely to use protection than adolescents in other states. as shown in the below statistics from 2007:

  • 57% of female high school students and 62% of male high school students reported ever having had intercourse compared to 46% of female high school students and 50% of male high school students in the U.S.
  • 5% of female high school students and 15% of male high school students reported having had sexual intercourse before age 13 compared to 4% of female high school students and 10% of male high school students in the U.S.
  • 17% of female high school students and 27% of male high school students said they had been sexually active with four or more partners compared to 12% of female high school students and 18% of male high school students in the U.S.

Because of these risk factors, STD testing is of critical importance for teenagers who are sexually active. However, many teens may not understand how to get tested or why it is so important to do so, and may be too embarrassed to ask for help with this issue.

For example, teens may not know that some STDs can be spread even without intercourse, or that many STDs don’t have any outward symptoms. One example is herpes – most people infected with this virus do not have symptoms, but outbreaks can cause painful sores that take weeks to heal and cause a great amount of shame and embarrassment.

However, herpes can be detected with a simple blood test. This is even more important since having certain types of herpes can increase the risk of contracting HIV, even when no symptoms of herpes are present. Because the state has one of the highest rates of HIV in the country, with many cases coming from the area, HIV prevention and testing is critical.

STD Testing and Demographics

 

The metro has some of the highest rates of STDs in Delaware. For example, New Castle County has the biggest population of Delaware’s three counties and also has the highest number of HIV/AIDS cases. Most of these cases come from the Wilmington metro area – though Wilmington comprises 14% of the New Castle County population it accounts for 42% of the county’s individuals living with HIV/AIDS.

As in many other parts of the country, African-Americans are affected to a greater degree by HIV/AIDS. in Delaware, though African-Americans make up only 21% of the overall population, 66% of the state’s HIV/AIDS cases are African-Americans. In Wilmington, over half the population is African-American. The median age is also around 33, and a younger population is often more likely to have a high incidence of HIV/AIDS and other STDs. However females are more likely to be diagnosed with chlamydia.
