What are the STI test options in James Island,SC?
The town of James Island in South Carolina is often lumped together with the Charleston-North Charleston-Summerville metropolitan area for statistical purposes. However, whether they are from White Point Estates, Eastwood, or Parrot Creek the people of James Island will tell you they are a breed of their own.
As such, it is little wonder that this community stands out among the nation’s current climate of rampantly increasing STD and HIV rates as one of the few areas seeing an improvement.
In fact, from 2014 to 2018 this town saw a reduction in the prevalence rate for STDs that exceeded that of the state as a whole; 9.1% and 7.8% respectively. Furthermore, its HIV rate rose by a mere 1.3% compared to the 8.5% realized by South Carolina during that period.
James Island and the greater Charleston County area are making great strides in the war against STDs. Continued testing and education will help propel our success against this health crisis into the next decade.
For those who are looking for STD or HIV screenings, they will have to drive outside of James Island. However, there are several options nearby.
