What are the STI test options in Olathe,KS?

Budget cuts in the public health sector have led to loss of funding for sex ed programs in Kansas. Health officials worry that STD rates will increase even more sharply without these programs.

Many people are advocating for expedited partner therapy—sending a course of antibiotics with a patient for their partner—to help curb the increases. Otherwise, patients get re-infected quickly. Health officials warn all sexually active people to always use protection and get tested often.

In 2017, there were 678 people living with HIV or AIDS in Johnson County. Also in 2017, Johnson County had 2,017 cases of chlamydia, at a rate of 345.1 per 100K people, below the Kansas rate of 466.1. The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 99.4 and 2.6.
