STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Henderson, TX

The historic city may have a small population, but it is dealing with the same health problems as the rest of the state. The small independent school district does promote abstinence, and is now beginning to offer more educational options in response to the rising number of teen pregnancies. While educating young adults about the risks of unprotected sex is starting to slow the birth rate among teenagers, the city is still experiencing a rise in the number of reported STD cases. Until residents are educated about the need for regular testing, sexually transmitted diseases will continue to spread.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Henderson, TX

The city of Henderson has a population just under 14,000 and its strong religious ties might actually be contributing to the spread of STDs in the area. While abstinence is promoted and there are even clubs for teenagers to join, the lack of education is contributing to the rise in sexually transmitted diseases.
