Prince William County Health officials have signaled a red flag as far as sexually transmitted infections are concerned. Rates of STIs have become a health issue in the recent past; something that one could have barely imagined during the 90s.
A Virginia STI Surveillance Report analyzed the rates of early syphilis in the county. According to the survey, the rates of primary syphilis cases have been on a spike from 2011-2014. In Prince William, the rate had reached 8.1, up from 4.0.
Additionally, a Be Healthy Be Happy report on chlamydia rates in the country showed that the rates of infections of the disease had increased. In 2013, it was 314.4, and in 2016, the prevalence rate hit the 419.1 mark.
The Prince William Health Department started the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) in the bid to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS. The program enabled to offer financial assistance to county residents who cannot afford treatment drugs.
Testing services may be available in several medical centers across Linton Hall and across the county. They include the Prince William Health Department Clinic which has two locations; one facility on Prince William Parkway, and the other on Lee Avenue in Manassas.
Also, you can visit the Inova Jupiter Program on Gibson Street or the NOVA Salud clinic situated along Sleepy Hollow Road in Falls Church city. These STD care clinics may provide RAPID HIV tests.
Other location within Linton Hall may offer free STD testing. Nonetheless, you can hardly cover the purpose of your visit. Other tests may require extra charges while some STD tests options may not be available.
