What are the STI test options in Manhattan,NY?
New York’s boroughs are treated as separate cities when gathering statistical data such as STD rates, and Manhattan ranks #66 on the list of the most sexually diseased cities in the US. New York City has seen a recent rise in syphilis diagnoses, and the New York neighborhoods with the highest rates are in Manhattan, including Chelsea, Washington Heights, and Central Harlem.
In 2017, 402 Manhattanites were diagnosed with HIV, and 281 people with HIV/AIDS died.
Fortunately, the HIV rate is decreasing. But in 2016, 62,965 people had chlamydia and 16,913 had gonorrhea; both had increased from 2015. New York City has invested more money in sexual-health awareness, resulting in ads around the city, longer hours at sexual health clinic, and free condoms.
Manhattan has lots of clinics that test for STIs. You may qualify for free STD testing at the city clinics if you can prove you cannot pay (keep in mind public clinics are known for long wait times).
Callen-Lorde Community Health Center focuses on the LGBTQ community and provides testing and treatment of STIs, plus counseling. It is located on 18th St. And there are many more in Manhattan, so you are sure to find a clinic near you that will work with your schedule and budget.
