What are the STI test options in Gracewood,GA?
Statistics for STD rates in Gracewood, GA are wrapped up in figures for Richmond County, which is ranked as the U.S. county with the seventh highest rate of STDs measured as cases per 100,000 of the population. That is according to 2013 data collected by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
In 2017 there was also a large increase in the number of cases from the previous year, even though 2016 saw a slight decrease from 2015. That year’s dip may have been an anomaly, according to experts, and the increase is the wider 10-year trend.
Georgia Department of Health statistics shows 3,605 STD cases were recorded in 2017 in the county made up mostly of chlamydia and gonorrhea. Around 64% of cases affected people aged between 10 and 24. The MSM population, men who have sex with men, are also at high risk for transmission of HIV. Syphilis is also being co-infected with HIV in this group.
Statistics also show that the county has one of the highest rates for HIV and AIDS cases.
“The peak and highest rates of infections are appearing to happen in people aged between 15 and 30, but the highest of those maybe between 18 and the early 20s.”
HIV and STD testing are available for Gracewood, GA residents at the Georgia Department of Public Health and Richmond County Health Department in Augusta, GA.
Serenity Behavioral Health Systems also has a testing program, as does the Augusta University Ryan White Outreach Team.
While residents may be able to get free STD testing, it may not apply to all STDs.
