What are the STI test options in Syracuse,NY?
Onondaga County ranks among the highest STD rates in New York State. Susceptibility for this high rate of transmission is believed to be related to high poverty levels and large populations of college students in the area.
The most commonly reported STDs are: chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. The rate of HIV diagnoses was reported at 25.7 per 100,000 residents in 2012 for the city of Syracuse.
Syracuse University hosts a free STD testing and screening event, a month-long awareness campaign for sexual health, and a Q&A panel to answer student questions anonymously. Other organizations have initiatives including posters to raise awareness for regular testing, PrEP, and disease prevalence concerns.
ACR Health offers education and testing services, hoping to someday soon start delivering more educational facts than positive STD results. Community services help support those living with sexually transmitted diseases and those who love and help them.
Testing centers are located throughout the city of Syracuse. For example, you can find testing services at the Onondaga County Health Department on Montgomery Street and at the Planned Parenthood of Central and Western New York Incorporated on East Genesee Street.
