What are the STI test options in Biloxi,MS?

In 2016, Mississippi had the highest gonorrhea rates in the US. Health officials partially blame budget cuts in the public health sector, which have led to the closure of many STD clinics, leaving some people without a clinic nearby.

Many free STD testing programs were also cut, as were awareness programs. Also, there’s a lack of awareness around STIs, and condom use has decreased over the past decade.

In 2017, 20 people in Harrison County were diagnosed with HIV, at a rate of 9.8 per 100K people, a little under the Mississippi rate of 14.3. The same year, Harrison County had 1,208 chlamydia cases, at a rate of 589.2 per 100K people, in comparison to Mississippi’s rate of 708.7. The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 313.6 and 18.

There are not many STD-testing clinics in Biloxi. Coastal Family Health Center has several locations and does STI screenings and treatment. You will need to show proof of your income to qualify for a sliding scale fee. Free STD testing is available at the county level, but there may be a wait for services.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Biloxi, MS

Rates for sexually transmitted infections are high in Mississippi. Unfortunately, the state has the highest rate of STDs in the United States according to a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control. This is along with much of the South having among the highest rates.

The Director of STD/HIV for the Mississippi Department of Health notes that Mississippi tends to be at the higher end for STDs compared to the northern states. Here are some statistics to note.

Chlamydia is the number one disease in the state. Gonorrhea, HIV, and syphilis rates follow chlamydia.

Black people have 15 times the rate of white people as related to chlamydia. The rates of chlamydia and gonorrhea in Mississippi were higher than any other state in the country.  The average is 774 out of 100,000 Mississippians having chlamydia, with Alabama and Louisiana coming in second and third. Concerning gonorrhea, 231 out of 100,000 people in Mississippi had the disease.

Louisiana and Alabama come in second and third respectively. While we have seen declines in STIs in Mississippi, the rates are still the highest in the country.

Mississippi has the fifth highest rate of chlamydia in the country, with more than 17,000 cases reported in 2015. Mississippi has the third highest rate for gonorrhea and 12th highest for syphilis. More than 17,000 Mississippians reported having chlamydia in 2015, down from more than 21,000 in 2011.

The state’s syphilis rates have almost tripled in the last three years, and the Mississippi Department of Health website shows that rates are rising quickest in young African American men.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Biloxi, MS

Sex education in the public schools of Mississippi must be abstinence only or abstinence plus curriculums. This abstinence-only curriculum must teach that abstinence from sexual activity before marriage and fidelity within marriage are the only certain ways to avoid out-of-wedlock pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and related health problems.

This is what state law says. You cannot include any demonstration in this type of curriculum of how to use condoms or any other contraceptives.

Abstinence plus education may discuss contraceptives and the nature, causes, and effects of STDs or the prevention of STDs, including HIV/AIDS, along with a factual presentation of the risks and failure rates. State law also mandates that boys and girls must be separated according to gender into different classrooms during sex-related education courses. Factnotfiction.com is an online resource for sex education and run by the Women’s Foundation of Mississippi.

This group also funds eight programs statewide with grants that address STI education plus counselling and pregnancy prevention. This organization uses health department data to target advertising for the Fact Not Fiction site to teens in areas with the highest rates of STIs in the state. The site uses evidence-based and medically accurate data to address myths about common misconceptions about safe sex and STIs providing a strong education function.

Factnotfiction.com also has an Ask The Expert section. Anyone can submit an anonymous question about sexual health. The Women’s Foundation collects those questions and gets nurses from the University of Mississippi Medical Center to answer.

The group attempts to use these digital tools to reach students where they are. The group attempts to not be judgmental and not use shame. They try to give students information that they need and make it feel like entertainment.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Biloxi, MS

Demographics play a role in STD rates. For example, Chlamydia infections happen most with women under the age of 26. As another example, black people have 15 times the rate of white people as related to chlamydia.

Reasons for the highest in the land rates include poverty. People are less likely to be regular users of the health care system. This includes primary care.

Many have no insurance or are underinsured. These people tend to use the emergency room and health department clinics more than a primary care doctor. African Americans in the state have higher rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea. and syphilis.

This is according to Mississippi Department of Health data. With the numbers showing that the state’s syphilis rates have almost tripled in the last three years, the Mississippi Department of Health notes that rates are rising quickest in the young African American male demographic.
