Fremont is part of the San Francisco Bay area, which is an STD hot spot. But Alameda County’s STD rates are lower than those of San Francisco County. In 2015, there were 5,354 people living with HIV or AIDS in Alameda County, with a prevalence rate of 388 per 100K people, just above California’s rate of 376.

California has a relatively progressive sex education curriculum, and they also do regular STD awareness programs that include free STD testing, free condoms, and educational programs. This way, health officials hope to bring the STD rates down.
