What are the STI test options in Dearborn,MI?
Dearborn, Michigan, is a suburb of Detroit, so one would expect it to share that city’s high STD rates, but their HIV rate is much lower.
In 2016, there were 6,675 people living with HIV or AIDS in Wayne County, which Dearborn shares with Detroit and other suburbs; 343 more people were diagnosed that year. But the HIV prevalence rates in the Dearborn zip codes ranged from 68 to 134 per 100K people, much lower than the Detroit rates.
In 2015, Wayne County had 14,889 cases of chlamydia, at a rate of 884.2, but keep in mind Dearborn’s numbers will probably be lower. Wayne County’s gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 239 and 8.5.
Health officials are worried about people out there who still don’t know they are infected and may be unknowingly infecting others. Also, may STD clinics and prevention programs have closed down due to budget constraints.
Dearborn has some STD-testing clinics, and of course there are more options in the surrounding areas. You may qualify for free STD testing at a public health clinic, but you will need to bring proof of your income (and there may be a wait).
There are charitable clients that provide free screening for some STDs as well, though hours may be irregular. The Community Health Awareness Group on Fort St provides STI and HIV rapid testing, and they have a needle exchange. 1st Choice Urgent Care, on Michigan Ave, offers STD testing, with a discounted rate for those who don’t have insurance.
