Additional STD Test Statistics in Racine, WI

The Health Department for the city recently received 845 reports of STDs with the number higher than earlier years. A city office noted that we do not have a specific reason why people are having unprotected sex.

In particular, chlamydia cases in your city remain high. Racine had the third highest number of chlamydia cases in the state.

In general, unhealthy STD rates are reported in your area and include Milwaukee. A recent study shows your area and Milwaukee as having some of the highest rates of specific STD incidences in the country. This includes chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis.

We see steady rates of chlamydia and gonorrhea among the highest in the country. The city of Milwaukee continues to increase in rank as rates go down in other cities.

  • Chlamydia rates fluctuate year to year and range consistently high from 850 to 1000 per 100,000 people.
  • Gonorrhea rates fluctuate year to year and are consistently high with a range of 400-620 per 100,000 people so a typical year would be about 4100 reported cases in Milwaukee.

Syphilis rates are more complicated to understand. There are five subtypes and the focus in public health is on the primary and secondary subtypes. These two types have been relatively low in Milwaukee. The range is between 1.1 and 4.6 per 100,000 people. This follow the national trend of decreasing through 2004 then increasing again.

STD rates remain consistently high in your area. The trend is not increasing upward but the rates are certainly of concern. The ranking among cities in the United States is in the top five. Other cities see rates trending down. The Milwaukee area rates remains high.

Here are some statistics about how Milwaukee compares to other cities in the Unites States. This is according to the National Association of County and City Health Officials.

  • Milwaukee has the highest rate of all cities in the state for chlamydia
  • Milwaukee has the third highest rate of gonorrhea in the state

STD Testing and Sexual Education in Racine, WI

High rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis are alerting public health officials in your area to a need for increased preventative education. With sexually transmitted disease education a standard part now of middle school curriculum across the United States, the efforts at education have not changed the high rates of STIs in the Milwaukee area.

As Milwaukee’s Commissioner of Health, Bevan Baker has great concerns over the large number of cases of STIs in the area. He likes to provide young people with what he calls a reality test as part of their education.

If you are sitting in a row, he asks you to look to your right. That person has chlamydia.

Look to your left. That person has gonorrhea.

If neither one has an STI, then probably you do. We see in the Milwaukee area the idea that a comprehensive approach is best for sex education.

Milwaukee public schools started a comprehensive curriculum for sex education. Teen birth rates in Milwaukee dropped after implementation of the curriculum with the goal of reducing teen birth rates to historic lows. The goal was a 46% reduction in birth rates for girls aged 15 to 17. The United Way of Greater Milwaukee and key partners set their ambitious goal to cut teen births. The city has come a long way. During the 1980s and 1990s, the city ranked among the highest in the nation in teen births.

The numbers are improving. Most improvement came since community partners made reducing teen birth rates their mission.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Racine, WI

Demographics play a role in the problems with STIs in your city, county, and state with the problems especially acute in the Milwaukee area having some of the most cases and highest rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis in the nation. We see that STIs rates are high among young people and that when teens in the Milwaukee area were given the facts about contraception, STIs, and abstinence, young people began to wait longer before they had sex and reduced the number of partners they had.

A recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Youth Risk Behavior survey showed that 40% of Wisconsin high school students have had sex. With teen pregnancy rates coming down in your area, this is good because an early pregnancy increases the chances that the young mother and her child will grow up in poverty.

There is no one reason why gonorrhea numbers are so high but a recent public health official cited poverty and drug use as being contributing reasons. Poverty can lead to homelessness which could lead to couch surfing according to the public official.

This can lead to being forced to have sex to have a place to stay. Victims do not feel that can even discuss the use of a condom. Drug use can go the same way. If someone is addicted to drugs they may not have the money when they have to get their fix. That can mean giving away their body.

STIs are highest among poor black and gay males but we are now seeing STIs grow in more affluent areas. STIs also affect young girls who are white. As we see heroin spread to other areas we see those addicted to drugs put themselves into risky and dangerous situations. This is so that they can get high.
