What are the STI test options in Charleston,WV?

Charleston, the largest city in West Virginia and the county seat of Kanawha, has experienced a shift in the types of STDs reported in recent years. The number of new cases of gonorrhea has risen sharply, with cases per 100,000 almost doubling from 216 to 393 in 2017, signaling a need for more STI awareness and elimination in Kanawha County.

Reported cases of chlamydia have declined from 831 per 100,000 in 2013 to 662 per 100,000 in 2017, with cases among women 2.2 times greater than cases among men.

Charleston is responsible for Kanawha County’s status as one of the top five counties in West Virginia with the highest new cases of HIV reported in 2017, with a rate of 177 per 100,000 and 44 cases reported that year. The County also has the highest number of people designated as living with HIV in 2016.

The CDC, in conjunction with the West Virginia State health department, is implementing HIV/AIDS programs and policies that will have an impact on HIV prevention in the most affected communities. Evidence-based disease monitoring, routine evaluation, and assessment of health-risk behaviors are just three ways the CDC hope to stem the spread of the disease.

There are a number of private and public clinics serving Charleston and residents of the surrounding area, including the Charleston Health Department and several MedExpress Urgent Care clinics.

There are also STD awareness campaigns that may offer free STD testing services, which residents of Charleston can take advantage of. Queues for free services may be long and you may not be able to book.
