Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Renton, WA

With many residents simply choosing to put off this important health checkup, it is easy to see why STD rates are rising.

A recent change to insurance plans is making it difficult for some residents to afford regular testing. Medicare is no longer legally allowed to cover the cost of the simple procedure, even though it is an important part of staying healthy.

The city of Renton is also not part of the program being tried out in Seattle, where partners of those who test positive for a STD can receive antibiotics anonymously. This program is being credited with helping to significantly lower the number of cases of Chlamydia and Gonorrhea reported in Seattle each year.

The biggest reason for the high STI rates remains the lack of information available to the public. Teens and young adults often do not realize that their behavior is putting them at risk. Since STDs can be spread through a variety of methods, this is also increasing other residents chances of contracting a sexually transmitted disease.
