What are the STI test options in Cleveland,OH?
Although Ohio’s rates of HIV are relatively low, they’re higher than neighboring states like Michigan, Indiana, and Kentucky, this includes Cleveland. In 2016, the city reported a rate of 9.9 cases of HIV per 100,000 people. Along with unprotected sex, drug use is tied in with the rising cases of such STDs as HIV and viral hepatitis.
In 2017 the rates for chlamydia among women alone were reported to be as high as 711 per 100,000 for the population of Ohio. Younger women, between the ages of 15 and 24, are at the highest risk. Primary and secondary syphilis cases also increased in 2017, with the highest risk being faced by gay and bisexual men.
Billboard campaigns have rolled out to spread the word on the danger of STDs like syphilis and gonorrhea.
These billboards use explicit and attention-grabbing imagery to educate the general public on the seriousness of staying safe and getting tested.
