What are the STI test options in Miramar,FL?
South Florida has some of the highest STD rates in the country. In 2015, there were 18,867 people living with HIV or AIDS in Broward County, with a prevalence rate of 1,180 per 100K people.
Health officials in South Florida are concerned that people are not coming in for testing and treatment due to the social stigma. Heroin use is also responsible for some of those numbers.
