Additional Statistics

Located in Onondaga County, the city of Syracuse is dealing with a rising STD rate and statistics indicate that this has been occurring over the past twenty years.

Chlamydia and Gonorrhea rates are soaring in men and women, and health officials are worried that unless residents start protecting themselves and get tested on a regular basis these numbers will continue to climb and surpass state and national averages. It is not only the rates of these two sexually transmitted diseases that are on the rise, but Syphilis diagnoses and HIV/AIDS percentages are also climbing. This has many health officials concerned since they though Syphilis incidents were on the decline over the past two decades.

The statistics also indicate that it is not only teens and young adults that are at risk, but older residents are also testing positive for a sexually transmitted disease more often. This has lead to an increased awareness by some city leaders about the importance of education and STD testing.

Some of the statistics that indicate there is a problem with sexually transmitted diseases in the area include,

  • Between 2011 and 2012 the rate of Chlamydia diagnoses rose from 1604 to 1671.
  • In 2011 92 men tested positive for Gonorrhea compared to 261 twelve months later in 2012.
  • There were 124 women diagnosed with Gonorrhea in 2011 compared to 338 in 2012.
  •  African Americans are among those with the highest risk of contracting Chlamydia or Gonorrhea according to 2012 statistics.

One of the largest contributing factors to the spread of STDs is the lack of available information. Many students and even older residents do not realize that they are engaging in risky behaviors. The lack of information also makes it difficult for health professionals to stress the importance of regular testing to adults and teenagers.

Recent economic problems have forced some of the community health centers to close, and this has also resulted in a shortage of qualified personnel to perform the tests. Economic hardships are also making it difficult for everyone to afford testing regularly, especially since many of the programs designed to help lower income families are no longer available.

A strong conservative base in the city has made it difficult for health officials to implement the necessary programs in the area, and this has also made it harder for some teens and young adults to get the information or advice they need to stay safe. This has lead to a mistaken belief by some of the city’s youth that a STD can’t happen to them.

An increase in intravenous drug use among older men is being help partially responsible for the rise in primary and secondary Syphilis diagnoses, along with the fact that this risky behavior often leads to other poor decisions concerning their sexual health. Other demographical factors include the fact the residents are staying sexually active longer, and teens are engaging in intercourse at a younger age. Until everyone understands how important it is to get tested on a regular basis the number of STDs reported each year will continue to rise.
