What are the STI test options in Glendale,AZ?

In 2015, 427 people in Maricopa County were diagnosed with HIV. The rate has been more-or-less stable since 2000, while the rate of AIDS diagnosis has gone down.

Syphilis is a big problem though, with the congenital syphilis rate double that of the US rate. Syphilis also puts the infected person at risk for HIV: in 2016, 35.2% of people with syphilis also had HIV.

Chlamydia has increased, with a rate of 522 per 100K people in 2016; the rate of gonorrhea was 155. Health experts blame the fact that sex education is not mandated in Arizona, so young people engaging in sexual activity do not know how to protect themselves.

Arizona health officials have launched an awareness campaign that includes free STD testing events and billboards that encourage people to get screened.

Glendale has STD testing in a number of conveniently located clinics, and there are even more options in Phoenix itself. NextCare Urgent Care provides STI testing at several locations around Glendale. The Phoenix Shanti Group, on West Glendale Ave, can help you get tested and find a place to live if you need it.

HealthStyles Southwest offers a comprehensive STD test in several locations. Planned Parenthood tests for all STIs and provides treatment for all of them except for HIV, and you can find them on W. Eugie. Maricopa County Public Health, on Roosevelt St in Phoenix, tests for HIV, chlamydia, syphilis, and gonorrhea.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Glendale, AZ


Without comprehensive sexual education programs in the classrooms students and some parents won’t understand the dangers associated with sexually transmitted diseases. Not all STDs are passed through intercourse, and everyone doesn’t always display noticeable symptoms immediately. Without regular testing the disease can be spread without anyone even realizing it.

Regular Herpes testing in Glendale can help detect and prevent the spread of this common STD, and it can even stop embarrassing flare ups from occurring. It is also extremely important to have regular HIV testing in Glendale, especially since the disease does not always exhibit symptoms until it has progressed to AIDS.

The simple test only takes a couple of minutes and it can potentially save your life and that of someone you love.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Glendale, AZ

The demographical makeup of Glendale does play a role in the city’s STD rate and this includes age, gender and income, along with religious and cultural beliefs.

The city’s conservative beliefs have made it difficult for there to be any type of comprehensive sexual education program in the middle and high schools, instead trusting that promoting abstinence will help protect students from a STD. These strong moral and cultural beliefs also make it difficult for teens and even some adults to admit that they are sexually active, and without proper education they do not realize that they are increasing their risks of contracting a STD.

Many lower income families find it difficult to afford regular health screenings, and they also have a problem locating a clinic in their neighborhoods.

Other demographical factors contributing to the city’s rising number of STDs includes the large number of inmates that are released regularly from the nearby county jail. The prison population ranks among the highest for its STD rate, and these same inmates are usually released before officials have a chance to test them for a sexually transmitted disease. Since statistics show that the majority of these inmates are not even aware that they have a STD they can continue to infect others without knowing it.
