What are the STI test options in Concord,NC?

In 2016, North Carolina was the second most sexually diseased state in the US, and Charlotte had some of the highest rates in the state. Concord, as part of the Charlotte metropolitan area, could be expected to share the larger city’s STD problems.

In fact, Cabarrus County’s HIV prevalence rate is a third of Mecklenburg County’s (200 vs 632 per 100K people). But don’t get too smug about it, Concord. Those numbers need to come down further!

In 2017, there were 255 gonorrhea cases in Cabarrus County, at a rate of 123.3 per 100K people. The chlamydia rate was 471.8.

Health experts are concerned about the high STD rates in the south and blame a number of factors. In short, many people are not using protection, and they do not understand the risks they are taking by not using it. High poverty levels also mean fewer doctor visits for many people.

There are a few STD-testing clinics in Concord, and there are even more options if you can get to Charlotte. At least one public clinic provides free HIV testing only, and a faith-based clinic that advises pregnant women provides free STD testing for gonorrhea and chlamydia only.

The Cabarrus Health Alliance on Mooresville Rd offers low-cost screening of STIs (based on your financial situation). The UNC Charlotte Student Health Center provides HIV testing for students.
