What are the STI test options in Fairbanks,AK?
Alaska has some of the highest bacterial STD rates in the US. Part of this is because Alaska’s large size and low population density mean that many people don’t have access to clinics. They would have to travel a long distance to reach one, so the problem goes undiagnosed and untreated.
Also, insufficient sex education results in young people who don’t know how to protect themselves when they have sex, and don’t understand the different ways STIs can be spread.
In 2015, there were 47 people living with HIV or AIDS in Fairbanks North Star Borough, with a prevalence rate of 58 per 100K people. Alaska had 5,698 reported cases of chlamydia in 2016.
