What are the STI test options in Lancaster,CA?

As part of the Los Angeles metropolitan area, Lancaster shares that city’s STD problems to some extent. In 2015, there were 48,170 people with HIV or AIDS living in Los Angeles County, with a prevalence rate of 568 per 100K people, well above California’s rate of 376.

In 2017, Los Angeles County had 64,326 chlamydia cases, at a rate of 626.2 per 100K people, also above California’s rate of 552.2. The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 254.2 and 19.5.

But if California’s STD rates are high, they are also doing a lot to raise awareness about the issue. Medically accurate, age-appropriate comprehensive sex education is required in schools, and billboards urge people to get tested for STIs.

Health officials say that the biggest problem is that many people who have STIs do not know they are infected, especially if poverty prevents them from seeking health care. However, most places have free STI testing available if you know where to find it and if you ask for it, even if it’s not advertised.

Lancaster has some STD-testing clinics, and there are even more options in the surrounding areas. At least one option provides free STD testing to those who can prove their inability to pay. The Bartz-Altadonna Community Health Center, on Gingham Ave, provides testing and treatment for HIV and hep C.

First Health Medical Clinic offers STI testing and treatment in their Family Planning Center on E Ave K. Antelope Valley Health Center, also on E Ave K, also offers STD testing.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Lancaster, CA

Analysts and statisticians working with local health departments compile the information which shows a high degree of consistency for who is at the greatest risk for a particular STD and it is used to target these groups with educational campaigns in order to encourage them to seek testing and if necessary, treatment if the testing results are positive. The following statistics show the rates of selected STD infections per 100,000 in population.

These statistics reflect a higher rate for Gonorrhea and Syphilis than are seen in Salem, OR just the next state over. Even though the numbers cause concern enough, health department officials believe that if everyone in the highest risk groups would get tested for STD infection, these figures would increase. There is evidence to support the concern among health professionals that the sexual health of residents in this area is at risk because of the high numbers combined with other factors which could exacerbate the situation.




STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Lancaster, CA

Efforts are currently being made to reach target populations with educational resources about STD rates and risk factors. The statistics show that the risk for people age 15 to 19 years of age is increasing. Health department and government officials have worked in a collaborative effort to mandate sexual health education in all of the public schools. The courses are provided just prior to the age at which some youth begin sexual experimentation. Information about the consequences of unprotected sex including unwanted pregnancy and STDs is presented. After completion of the classes, students know where to get a Herpes test and where to go for HIV testing in the area.

Poverty is widespread in this area and it is a contributing factor for high risk for STD infection. People with few financial resources are less likely to have access to educational information and quality health care services for STD testing and treatment. The public school dropout rate is higher in impoverished areas and these students. Some will miss the opportunity for sexual health education at this vital time of life.

Other factors in addition to low income levels are age, gender and ethnicity which also play a role in elevating risk for certain STDs. Chlamydia is twice as high in women than men. Those in the 20 -24 age group have the highest positive test results followed by those 15-19, then 25 to 29. Persons of Black ethnicity have the highest rates followed by Hispanics, then Whites.

Gonorrhea rates are slightly higher for men than for women. Men in the 20 to 24 age group rank the highest followed by those 25 to 29 with 30 to 34 being the next highest, then age 15-19. Syphilis in all stages is less common, but is becoming more widespread, particularly in those who have male to male sex and it is more frequently diagnosed in populations who have also tested HIV positive. There is also a higher rate of Chlamydia and Gonorrhea in these groups.

When the highest risk groups for certain STDs is identified, the information gives health officials a target to aim for with educational campaigns. While there are STD testing centers in the area that offer free or reduced rates for people who meet income guidelines for qualification, there is a limited amount of funding available. When block funding is depleted, there may be a waiting period until it is replenished. During this period of time, people who are unaware that they are infected may continue to spread STDs to others.
