What are the STI test options in Belmont,MA?

Middlesex County, a western suburb of Boston, where Belmont is a town, has experienced a spike in sexually transmitted diseases. Chlamydia cases doubled, with 149 cases per 100,000 reported in 2007 and 298 cases per 100,000 reported in 2016. By 2017, the number of chlamydia cases increased a further 26% to 5,250 cases.

Middlesex County also has an alarming number of syphilis cases. In 2017, 121 cases of primary and secondary cases of syphilis were reported by the CDC.

The number of people living with HIV/AIDS in Middlesex County was recorded as 3,879 as of January 1st, 2018. The average annual rate of HIV infection from 2014 to 2016 increased substantially form 8.4 per 100,000 in 2016 to an HIV prevalence rate of 258.1 per 100,000.

To combat the increase in HIV/AIDS prevalence, the Middlesex County Office of Human Services administers funds made available by the Ryan White Care Act, a program dedicated to helping low-income persons living with HIV. 

In addition to funding and services provided specifically for HIV-positive residents, there are several STD clinics in and around Belmont that provide much-needed STD testing and treatment services, including the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts center in Cambridge, AFC Urgent Care in Watertown, and the Cambridge Family Health center on Massachusetts Ave.

Among the other available options are the Charles River Community Health organization and the Massachusetts Alliance of Portuguese Speakers. 

Some available clinics can offer free STD testing. However, wait times may be inconsistent, and doctor consultations might not be available either.
