What are the STI test options in Pennsauken, NJ?
The township of Pennsauken, NJ — a suburb of Philadelphia, PA — is found along the coast on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River. This proud Camden County community is one of the few areas in the nation not experiencing a rapid upswing in STD prevalence rates.
In fact, during the five-year period between 2014 and 2018, the state of New Jersey saw a 1.8% increase in the prevalence rate of STDs. At that same time, Pennsauken Township realized a decrease in this rate of 3.6%.
The HIV prevalence rate in Pennsauken however, had a less than 1% increase. This is contrary to the state’s rate which lowered by 2.9% but still less than the increase seen nationally.
These lower than average numbers may be due in large part to a highly aggressive campaign by New Jersey and Camden County aimed at STD and HIV awareness.
“Pennsauken is winning the war on STDs but we still have work to do on the battle against the spread of HIV within our community.”
Often, health centers and clinics offer free STD testing. While this may be great for some, these services may have inconsistent hours, long wait times, and testing that is not comprehensive.
Those in the Pennsauken, NJ area that are seeking STD/HIV screenings have several options in the surrounding area. These include CamdenCountyClinical Services on Market Street, Planned Parenthood’s Camden Center on Broadway, andCAMcare Health Corporation’s East office on Federal Street; all in nearby Camden.
