What are the STI test options in Anaheim,CA?

Orange County’s bacterial STD rates are relatively low for California, but health officials are worried because the numbers are going up. Most strikingly, early syphilis went up 99% between 2013 and 2017.

This disease had been nearly wiped out, but it made a comeback when use of protection declined. In 2017, Orange County had 368 cases of primary and secondary syphilis, at a rate of 11.5 per 100K people. Syphilis can be mostly prevented by using protection during sex and not sharing needles, and it can be easily treated in the early stages but leads to major problems if left untreated.

Orange County had 14,027 chlamydia cases in 2017, at a rate of 438.2 per 100K people, which is lower than California’s rate of 552.2. The gonorrhea rate was 111.7. In 2015, there were 6,175 people living with HIV or AIDS in Orange County, with a prevalence rate of 233.

Anaheim has some STD-testing clinics, and there are even more options elsewhere in Orange County. Planned Parenthood is located on Lincoln Ave. They test for STIs and treat all except HIV, and the fee is on a sliding scale based on your income.

The Orange County Health Care Agency provides STD and HIV testing, and they also help you notify any partner who has been exposed. Some family planning clinics in the area provide free STD testing for women, but you may have to bring proof of your income to qualify.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Anaheim, CA

As of January 1st 2016 it is now mandatory for all public schools in the state to offer comprehensive sexual education classes for students in grades 7 through 12. While parents can still opt to have their children taken out of these classes, health officials see this new law as the first and most important step in the state’s effort to finally start to lower than high STD rates.

For more than twenty years the state of California and the city of Anaheim have been dealing with a high rate of STD infections. Teens and young adults have consistently been among those with the greatest risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease, and state officials and residents have finally come together in an effort to lower the STD rates.

These comprehensive classes not only cover the general information that was typically found in the abstinence only program, the new curriculum also teaches students how to protect themselves. Not only is the new sexual education classes designed to lower the STD rates among teens and young adults, but also in older residents.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Anaheim, CA

Orange County and the suburb of Anaheim have a diverse demographical makeup which adds to the appeal of the area, but it is also affecting the STD rates. African Americans and Hispanics are among those with the greatest risk, and residents ages 15 to 24 also test positive more often.

While age and ethnicity are contributing factors, the city also has the rare distinction of being home to one of the most frequently visited theme parks in the world which brings in a high number of visitors to the area. The large number of tourists is beneficial for the economy, but this also means that residents are at a higher risk of contracting a STD. Many of the visitors to the area are already infected, which increases residents’ risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease.

The large number of seasonal employees is also contributing to the problem, and will continue to do so until everyone takes a few minutes to take care of their sexual health. Recent budget cuts to local health programs is also making it more difficult for some residents to get tested, especially with many of the community centers closing due to lack of funding.

Language barriers and a fear of officials in some lower income neighborhoods has made it difficult for city leaders to adequately stress the importance of regular testing, and until they do the STD rates for the city are expected to continue to rise.
