Millcreek, Utah

Millcreek, Utah is a city in Salt Lake County. It is part of the Salt Lake City metropolitan area.

This was a rural area until after World War II. As with other communities that are south of Salt Lake City incorporated in the 1990s and 2000, your area is among the most populous unincorporated areas of the county.

Salt Lake City is the capital of the state. It was founded in 1847 by Brigham Young and others from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons). The founders were seeking escape from religious persecution.

Since Millcreek, UT is part of the metro area, it is also experiencing many of the same health problems as the nearby city. This includes increasing STI rates and the need for residents to take care of their sexual health.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Millcreek, UT

Health officials in Salt Lake County are trying to tackle an alarming rise in STDs. The health department tracks four STDs.

These are chlamydia, syphilis, HIV, and gonorrhea. All four are on the rise according to Salt Lake County Health Department epidemiology supervisor Lynn Beltran.

Gonorrhea appears to be going viral. “For so many years, in my position, I would hear from the community, from legislators and various other leaders in the community that we don’t have an STD problem here in Utah or in Salt Lake County,” Beltran said. “And the data says the exact opposite.”

“We have a significant problem here,” she continued. “And if we continue to bury our heads in the sand, it’s only going to get worse.”

A few years ago your county saw an average of 200 cases a year. Recently the number jumped to 40 percent higher.

Beltran reports limited resources to address this issue. The outbreak is forcing the department to reshuffle funding from other areas.

She noted that the Salt Lake County health department is trying to increase education for providers who may never have seen a gonorrhea case until recently. The department also launched at campaign to encourage the public to get regular screenings.

Beltran attributed the outbreak to use of dating apps that can lead to casual encounters and more sexual partners. Beltran said health officials have been unable to keep up with the fast-changing culture around relationships and sex. She advocates for comprehensive sex education in schools.

“I can’t help but wonder if that’s where Utah is falling down the most,” she said. “We need to be competing with this paradigm shift through education and it’s not happening.”

STD Testing and Sexual Education in Millcreek, UT

“We’ve been culturally watered down to think we have to teach about sex, about having sex and how to get away with it, which is intellectually dishonest.” So said Utah State Representative Bill Wright.

Wright is the sponsor of the bill to allow Utah schools to drop sex education classes. The bill also prohibits instructions in the use of contraception in those schools that keep courses.

“Why don’t we just be honest with them upfront that sex outside marriage is devastating?” he continued.  Some in the state oppose the bill.

“You cannot speak of abstinence without talking to students about methods of birth control that are not certain, about protecting oneself from [sexually transmitted diseases] and all the things that can happen in a negative sense to a young person who engages in sex,” said Representative Carol Spackman Moss in voicing her opposition.

“It’s really immoral not to teach kids about what the consequences are,” she continued. In discussing the bill, what passed in the House is a version allowing schools to forgo teaching about sex entirely. It also prohibits schools that continue to teach sex education from instructing students in “the use of contraceptive methods or devices.”

This is the kind of discussion happening in your state.  Some in the state want to prohibit instruction that encourages use of contraceptives but teachers could respond to student questions about the subject.

Some want a law that requires high schools to teach sex education, allowing them to choose whether to stress abstinence or teach abstinence-only. Some want to allow for adequate local control and let parents have the choice not to put a child in sex education.

The state school board stopped approval of a program from Planned Parenthood after complaints. The Planned Parenthood program taught about puberty to students in grades five and six.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Millcreek, UT

Demographics play a role in the number of STDs in your area. Lynn Beltran is the epidemiology supervisor of the Salt Lake County Health Department.

She noted that the majority of infections are among white men and women who are 15-34 years old. This is based on interviews with patients and their sexual partners.

She states that historically STDs have been disproportionately prevalent in black and Hispanic communities. STDs also tend to be more prevalent in people with a history of incarceration and men who have with men.

In Utah Beltran notes that the gonorrhea outbreak seems to be increasing fastest in the general population. A significant portion of patients are also being diagnosed at hospitals. They are also being diagnosed at clinics.

While anyone who is sexually active is at risk for getting an STD, women, youth, and people of color are generally more likely to become infected. For women, STDs pass more easily from men to women than vice versa, which results in higher female rates of infection.

The racial makeup of your area includes 87 percent white, 9 percent Hispanic or Latino, 3 percent Asian, and 1.5 percent African American. Two or more races comprise 3 percent of the population.
