Looking for a Low Cost or Free STD Testing Clinic? Let's See What's Available in Deer Valley, AZ

Health officials believe that there is a relationship between poverty and increased risk for contracting an STD. This city has a fair number of residents who are at or below established poverty standards. It is believed that among them, many have not had access to the same quality of education and the lack of information may cause them to not understand their risks for STD infection. Some STDs present few or no symptoms in the beginning stages and persons who are not aware that they are infected may inadvertently spread the infection to others, worsening the problem.

In addition to this, people who lack the financial resources to obtain STD testing and treatment me avoid making an appointment because they cannot afford it. Even though free STD testing services are available, these are often on a limited basis until annual funding accounts are depleted. There may be a waiting period for funding cycles to replenish, leaving those in need of testing without a place to turn.

Certain types of STDs are more common in specific groups of people. Health department professionals who analyze the data have identified definite trends and patterns that help in identifying who is at the highest risk for particular diseases. Chlamydia is most common in women who have nearly twice the number of cases as men. The numbers are highest in the 20-24 age group, followed by those who are 15 to 19. Those of African American descent have the highest incidences of positive test results, followed by Hispanics, Native American/Alaskan Native and then Whites.

Gonorrhea is more common in men than in women, although rates are high for each gender. Blacks make up the largest percentage followed by Hispanics and Whites. Syphilis is less common, but rates are still alarming and have increased in the past ten years. Men have higher incidences than women and in particular, men who have sex with other males are considered to be in the highest risk category. In addition to this, these men often test positive with dual diagnoses of Syphilis and HIV or Chlamydia.

Understanding which groups are at the highest risk for each of these sexually transmitted diseases is needed for the development of educational campaigns which can more effectively reach the people who need the information the most. Local health care providers, STD clinics and social workers provide free literature and public informational sessions which are free to the public in an attempt to reach more with this needed information about risk, prevention, identification of symptoms and where to get tested.
