What are the STI test options in Colony,TX?
The unique community of The Colony, TX is located in Denton County and is a suburb of Dallas. Like the state, The Colony and Denton County have seen a rampant increase in the prevalence rates of STDs. At the same time, there has been a slight decrease in the prevalence rate of HIV/AIDS in this community of fewer than 50,000 people.
In 2017, the rate for STD infection showed a steady increase in overall cases from roughly 60 per 100,000 people in 2013 to about 190 per 100,000 people in 2017. During this period, the prevalence of HIV/AIDS cases in The Colony was also increasing with an overall rise of nearly 16%.
These rates show that the fastest growing groups of people contracting the majority of STDs in Denton County are white males between the ages of 18 and 24. For HIV/AIDS, this group consists of males between 25 and 34 of African American descent.
“We’re going in the wrong direction with sexually transmitted infections and diseases,” Matt Richardson, director of county health in Denton, said in a presentation to Denton County commissioners.
Those looking for screening and treatment for HIV/AIDS and STDs in the area of The Colony have a few options from which to choose. These include clinics that are public and which may offer reduced cost or free services.
