What are the STI test options in Aloha, OR?
Among all STDs, Chlamydia is leading in the number of cases per year in Aloha, OR. From 2013 to 2017, the number of people diagnosed with HIV in Oregon State declined from 232 to 200 diagnoses.
This reduction in the number of new HIV diagnoses in Oregon is due to the intensified sex education within the Counties and promotion of HIV prevention interventions such as Pre-exposure prophylaxis and post-exposure prophylaxis.
According to Oregon Health department, Aloha’s annual number of new HIV cases declined by 20 percent between 2016 and 2018. This is due to an increase in the number of infected people taking anti-retroviral therapy, which in turn reduces the chance of spreading the virus to other people.
In 2015, there were 358 new infections per 100,000 people while in 2016, there were 393 new infections per 100,000 people, which is a rapid rise. Its infection levels are below the rate of Oregon which had cases of Chlamydia at 479 per 100,000 persons in 2015 and 499 per 100,000 persons in 2016.
