Factors such as age and gender are critical considerations, with females accounting for 58.8% of all cases reported in 2017 and the highest number of cases recorded in the 15-24 age group, indicating a significant need for young people to receive more sexual health education, support, and services.
Several initiatives exist to help prevent younger Medina residents from contracting sexually transmitted diseases, including early intervention services and education provided by the Bexar County Department of Community Resources Ryan White Program and the South Texas Family AIDS Network.
Some facilities such as the Alamo Area Resource Center offer a variety of STD tests and support services for specific clientele such as HIV-positive, but some centers cater to the general public.
