What are the STI test options in Davie,FL?
Health officials are worried about the soaring STD rates in Southeast Florida, especially HIV and syphilis, which often affect the same people. Since modern medicine means that HIV is not the death sentence it used to be, many people have become lax about using protection.
PEP and PrEP inhibit the transmission of HIV, but they don’t block other STDs, and this is often how syphilis is passed along. Syphilis is mostly asymptomatic in the beginning stages, but it can cause irreversible damage to the body if left undetected and untreated.
In 2015, there were 18,867 people living with HIV or AIDS in Broward County, with a prevalence rate of 1,180 per 100K people, nearly double Florida’s rate of 615.
