What are the STI test options in Peoria,AZ?
Peoria is a suburb of Phoenix and shares that city’s STD problems to some extent. In 2016, Maricopa County had an HIV prevalence rate of 309.1 per 100K people, a bit above Arizona’s rate of 273.1. That same year, the chlamydia rate in the county was 531.1, in comparison to Arizona’s rate of 511.5. The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 184.8 and 13.
Local health officials are concerned about the rising rates, and especially the fact that young people account for such a large percentage of the cases.
Arizona State University, which is in Maricopa County, has the highest STD count of any US university. Health officials say young people are overconfident and don’t believe they can catch an STI, and they are unlikely to seek treatment due to embarrassment.
There are a few clinics in Peoria, and even more options in the surrounding areas (and you may be able to find free STD testing in Phoenix). NextCare Urgent Care tests for and treats STIs in its numerous locations. Planned Parenthood is located on Eugie Ave in Glendale. They test for STIs and treat all except HIV, and the fee is on a sliding scale.
