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.
