Fallbrook is a place in northern San Diego County, California. Recent data shows the rate of chlamydia is 573.9, gonorrhea is 151.2, syphilis is 14.0, and HIV is 454.6 for every 100,000 people in the county.
“The number of STDs increased in the state and the nation last year, and San Diego was no exception,” said Dr. Wilma Wooten, the county’s public health officer. “Sexually active people should take precautionary measures to avoid getting infected and get tested on a regular basis since many STDs don’t show any symptoms and may go unnoticed until complications develop.”
Fallbrook public health is managed by San Diego County. The county provides partner services, Ryan White Primary Care resources, has a HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis program, and has comprehensive HIV care programs.
The county also maintains an active presence on social media, operates outreach and group programs as well as one-on-ones for higher risk individuals. Furthermore, they distribute free condoms and education materials, have a chlamydia screening project, and an HIV planning group.
