Additional STD Test Statistics in Cleveland, OH

Cleveland and surrounding Cuyahoga County are experiencing a bump in reported STDs, and this alarming trend has been occurring over the last twenty years.

While some city leaders point out that the number of Gonorrhea cases actually decreased by 0.1 percent between 2011 and 2012, the rates actually rose in the county. Health officials point out that while this might indicate that the city is reaching residents but, these numbers in no way indicate that the crisis is under control.

Chlamydia rates also appear to be slowing down slightly in Cleveland, but the numbers are still higher than most state averages. Adding to health officials continued concern is the number of teens and young adults that are positive for one or more of these diseases.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Cleveland, OH

One of the reasons cited for the high STD rates in Cleveland is the state’s policy on sexual education classes in school. While the federal government does award schools that implement the approved abstinence only program, the state does not require its education system to include any type of classes.

Since there is not a standardized sexual education program in place in any of the public schools the rate of teen pregnancies and positive STD test results is continuing to rise. To combat this growing problem some educators are taking it upon themselves to implement a sexual education program, but without full support from state and city leaders it is hard to reach all of the students.

The lack of sex education classes is also making it difficult for students and parents to understand all of the dangers associated with unprotected sex.

Regular Herpes testing in Cleveland can prevent its spread, and it can also stop embarrassing cold sores from forming. Regular HIV testing in Cleveland is also vital to your health.


Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Cleveland, OH

Demographics also play a role in the STD rates, and this includes all social economic aspects.

The lack of education is putting teens and young adults at risk, and the high number of students who are testing positive for both Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are proof that more needs to be done.

Lower income neighborhoods are also seeing a rise in STD rates, often a result of an inability to afford regular testing, along with a shortage of community health clinics. These same neighborhoods are also experiencing a rise in reported drug use, and many officials are blaming this on the dramatic return of Syphilis. Intravenous drug use and other risky behaviors are also causing HIV rates to increase around Cleveland.

Shame and embarrassment are making it difficult for some residents to agree to regular testing, and these same feelings are causing some people to not admitting that they might have a STD. Discrimination against HIV/AIDS suffers is still strong in some Cleveland neighborhoods, and this can cause many people to avoid regular testing for fear of being noticed by a friend or family member.

Until Cleveland’s city leaders begin to address this growing problem and create a comprehensive sexual education for residents and students sexually transmitted diseases with continue to be a problem.
