What are the STI test options in Mission Bend, TX?
Mission Bend, TX is an ethnically diverse urban neighborhood in the greater Houston area that attracts young professionals and young families. It is a vibrant and somewhat Bohemian community where the majority of residence are professionals that earn reasonably well and enjoy a decent quality of life.
One downside in Mission Bend, TX, however, is the level of crime (both violent crime and property theft) that’s surprisingly high for such an otherwise well-kept and well to do neighborhood.
Another issue that’s cause for alarm in the community is the very real risk of sexual transmitted diseases. Mission Bend spans across two counties: Fort Bend and Harris counties. In 2013 and according to verifiable public health data, the rates of STDs per 100,000 individuals in these two counties was 244 and 545 respectively.
To put these figures in perspective, in the same year the best communities (i.e those with the lowest rates of STDs) were at 92 per 100,000 residents.
Texas has one of the highest rates of STDs in the entire United States.
