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.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Dearborn, MI

As part of the greater Detroit metro area the city of Dearborn is dealing with many of the same problems, including high STD rates. The city and surrounding Wayne County currently have the dubious distinction of reporting the highest STD rate in the state.

It is not just Chlamydia and Gonorrhea rates that are skyrocketing, but Syphilis and HIV diagnoses are also up in frequency. Statistics released by the CDC and Wayne County Health Department also show the teens and young adults are among those most commonly infected.

According to the state health department, STD rates have been steadily increasing for the past twenty years. Chlamydia diagnoses have been rising since 1999, and have surpassed state averages. Young women ages 15 to 24 are among those with the highest risk for contracting the disease, and African Americans account for over 50 percent of the reported cases.

Gonorrhea rates in young men are also rising, according to the statistics, especially among African Americans. The spike in HIV/AIDS diagnoses in recent years, along with the number of Syphilis cases reported annually have local health officials concerned, and these rates are rising faster in the metro area than in the rest of the state.

With STD rates rising at such a rapid pace, it is now more important than ever for residents to make regular STD testing a part of their health care routine. Some of the other statistics that are emphasizing the growing problem with sexually transmitted infections in the area include,

  • In 2014 there were 14,314 incidents of Chlamydia reported with 7,461 occurring in African Americans.
  • There were 4,083 cases of Gonorrhea reported in 2014, giving the county the highest rate in the state.
  • Wayne County and the metro area had the highest rate for Syphilis infections in 2014 with 572 cases reported.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Dearborn, MI

Currently the state and subsequently the city do not require sex education classes in public school districts. Public schools do offer abstinence based programs that students can attend with parental permission, and the basics regarding HIV/AIDS and how the virus can be transmitted is included. When it comes to the other STDs students are taught that abstinence is the best method of protection, and while this may be true for pregnancy it will not prevent the spread of all sexually transmitted diseases.

The majority of high school students graduate not knowing how all STDs are spread, and most do not realize how important using protection is if they are going to be sexually active. With polls showing that teens are becoming sexually active at a younger age, it is imperative that they know how to protect themselves for STIs.

Since most teens and young adults do not understand that sexually transmitted diseases can be spread through various methods, it is also easy for them to pass these viruses onto other residents. While this might help to explain the city’s high STD rates, it doesn’t help residents protect their health.

This is why regular HIV testing in Dearborn is so important, and it can help lower the city’s abnormally high infection rate. Regular Herpes testing in Dearborn is also necessary, especially since the disease is already present in area high schools.


Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Dearborn, MI

There are several reasons why Dearborn and the rest of the metro area are dealing with the highest STD rate in the state.

The lack of comprehensive classes in the public schools is leaving teens and young adults ill-equipped to deal with the dangers and responsibilities associated with being sexually active. This has resulted in a spike in STD infections and teen pregnancies.

Recent economic crashes first in the automobile industry and then in the housing market has left the city with little money to help educate or even treat residents that have already tested positive for a sexually transmitted disease. Many of the city’s STI clinics have been forced to shut their doors due to lack of funding, and others are only open for a few hours during the week.

This has made it difficult for many residents to find a STD clinic near them, and this does not take into account the budget cuts to health care. Now that regular STD testing is not covered by Medicaid, the city’s cash strapped residents are finding that the simply cannot afford the simple procedure.

The lack of available information and nearby STI testing centers has also caused many residents to mistakenly believe that sexually transmitted diseases are not a significant problem.

As long as these problems are allowed to continue and residents do not get tested as part of their regular health care routine, the STD rates in Dearborn will stay the highest in the state.
