What are the STI test options in Altoona,IA?

In 2017, Altoona, IA, had 565 HIV cases at a rate of 154, which steadily went up to 699 at a rate of 184, indicating that people were engaging in high-risk behaviors such as unprotected sex and shared injections.

Gonorrhea was also prevalent in Polk County as 1,119 residents were diagnosed with the disease at a rate of 236.1 in 2017.

There was a frequent occurrence of Chlamydia cases with 3,111 new infections reported at a rate of 656.3 in 2017. 

Syphilis, which leads to organ failure at the last stage, was also recorded with 107 cases at a rate of 22.6 in 2017. The infections were common among MSMs. 

To slow down the STD/HIV transmission rate, the Polk County Health Department links patients that test positive to immediate treatment, care, and Antiretroviral drugs. It collaborates with other healthcare organizations to create awareness on STD prevention measures and provide the essential preventative education to vulnerable groups in the county. The Health Department also works to reduce the stigma associated with STDs by making confidential testing available.    

Altoona, IA, has numerous medical laboratories providing free STD testing services to residents but prescriptions for after test care might not be offered if you've tested positive. For free tests, doctor consultation might not be available. 

You can schedule an appointment with Planned Parenthood- Susan Knapp Health Center, and MercyOne Ankeny Urgent Care for STD/HIV confidential testing and screening. You might also consider getting your sexual health services in hospitals such as Broadlawns Medical Center and Des Moines University Clinic.
