What are the STI test options in Chandler,AZ?
As part of the Phoenix metropolitan area, Chandler shares that city’s STD problems. There were 427 new HIV cases in Maricopa County in 2015, though the rate has stabilized since 2000. 35.2% of people with syphilis also had HIV, as having syphilis is a risk factor for HIV.
In 2016, Maricopa County had a chlamydia rate of 522 per 100K people, and a gonorrhea rate of 155.
Health officials blame the fact that sex education is not mandated in Arizona schools, so young people engaging in sexual activity do not know how to protect themselves. This lack of awareness continues into higher education, with nearby Arizona State University having the highest STD count of any US university.
Chandler has a number of STD-testing clinics, and there are more options in Phoenix and Tempe if you can get there (and larger cities tend to have free STD testing options). NextCare Urgent Care provides STI testing at several locations around Chandler.
