STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Federal Way, WA

Even though there are reports that students could begin learning about sex and gender identity as early as kindergarten, these rumors are false and the  state does not currently require public school systems to include sex education programs in its curriculum.

This means that the majority of public school districts in the city and county do not provide its students with any more information than what is currently required by federal law.

Teens are taught medically accurate information on HIV/AIDS and on how the potentially deadly virus can be spread. Students also learn that STDs are typically contracted through intercourse, and that abstinence is the best way for them to protect themselves. Unfortunately this information is not correct since STDs can be spread by a variety of methods that do not always include engaging in any type of sexual activity.

It is not uncommon for residents to not understand how important regular HIV testing in Federal Way is, not only for their health but also for those around them. Students also need to learn that regular Herpes testing in Federal Way is just as important, and that it is the first step towards stopping the spread of the virus in area high schools.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Federal Way, WA

Students are often graduating not understanding how STDs are spread, and most do not know that there are steps they need to take to protect their sexual health.

The lack of adequate STI clinics is also contributing to the problem, along with changes to Medicaid. Fewer health centers means that it is more difficult for residents to find a place to get tested, and the ones that are open often have long lines that no one wants to spend the day standing in. Changes to Medicaid has made it difficult for many residents to afford the cost of regular STD testing, even if they think that they might be infected.
