Additional STD Test Statistics in Miami, FL

According to a 2014 article  rates for both chlamydia and gonorrhea have doubled since 2006. While statistics show gonorrhea is on the decline in Miami, chlamydia has reached new heights with a record 77,851 cases reported in 2012. Of those cases, more than 55,000 were reported by women making it a serious health concern for the city.

Another concern is the age of many people who are infected with these three STDs. Since 2003, the number of cases reported by those over the age of 55 has raised red flags among healthcare professionals who work with the elderly. Since Miami has a large population of retirees, this overall trend of an increase for STDs has many professionals worried that outreach services and STD education aren’t being heard by senior citizens, partly because they may believe there’s no reason to worry.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Miami, FL

While Miami clearly has an issue with the spread of STDs citywide, the Health department has taken a proactive approach to education and testing. The Florida Department of Health offers STD testing options through low-cost and free STD clinics throughout the city. They also offer support, therapy and treatment options for those without insurance and outreach programs to help educate the public about not only precautions they can take but also early symptoms for a variety of STDs.

According to Florida State Statute 1003.42 (2)(n), health classes must cover “…an awareness of the benefits of sexual abstinence as the expected standard and the consequences of teenage pregnancy; mental and emotional health; injury prevention and safety; Internet safety; nutrition; personal health; prevention and control of disease; and substance use and abuse…” Unfortunately, this means many students receive little, if any, quality education in terms of understanding STDs and how they are transmitted or treated.

This lack of sex education has played a role not only in the spread of STDs throughout Miami, but it has also made it more difficult for people to understand why being regularly tested is so important. Routine STD testing should include both Herpes testing and HIV testing, but few people bother to have it done. Many don’t have the testing completed because they think they have to go to special STD clinics.

HIV is another serious issue facing Miami and the city ranks first in the state when it comes to HIV and AIDS rates. In January of 2104, there were more than 27,000 people in Miami-Dade County who tested positive for AIDS and HIV. HIV testing in Miami, Florida is now a routine part of most yearly check-ups but, again, many people think they don’t need to bother because of their age or relationship status.

STD Clinic Information in Miami, FL

Miami is diverse in age, ethnicity and culture, and their STD rates reflect this fact. In some cases, rates are on the rise for the older population, pointing to an issue focused on the care of the elderly. Quite often, senior citizens think they are past the point of worry when it comes to STDs but, unlike pregnancy, sexually transmitted viruses can be passed on and contracted at any age.

At the same time, a lack of comprehensive and sensible sex education leaves younger people with no clue as to how STDs are contracted or what the early signs are of various STDs. As a result, few get tested regularly and many don’t practice safe sex regularly.

Tourism plays a role in the sexual health of Miami as well. More than 38 million people visit the city each year, for a multitude of reasons. Miami is just as well known for its iconic beaches as it is for its more adult attractions. Florida – and Miami in particular – became a well-known city for sex tourism during the Prohibition, when the shores of Miami made the perfect landing spot for bootleggers. Since then, Miami’s reputation as a party town has only grown and has always attracted people looking for a good time which often includes casual sex.

This combination of a lack in education and international tourism has created something of a perfect storm when it comes to STDs in the Miami area. Unfortunately, outreach programs that offer STD testing as well as specific HIV and Herpes testing don’t always reach their intended audience.

Better Sexual Health in Miami, FL

As with many other initiatives to improve health, many residents of Miami need to be proactive. Due to a number of regulations, there are no options for a truly anonymous STD test in Miami but confidential STD testing is rather easy to obtain.

Both private and public STD clinics can offer a wide range of testing options, including specific tests for HIV and Herpes as well as broad spectrum testing. In some cases, this may mean reporting to a clinic and waiting for an appointment or people can also make use of mail order firms which offer discrete and confidential services while patients can remain anonymous since they don’t have to leave their home.

Miami, Florida is a bustling town with a vibrant cultural scene and internationally respected tourism industry. Still, issues with public sex education and outreach programs have left the city with a serious STD crisis.

Luckily, there are more options than ever before when it comes to testing, treatment, advice and support. A number of companies offer same day STD testing locally and mail-order companies can offer results quickly and confidentially.
